The Raw Carrot Soup Enterprise is a social franchise based in Southwestern Ontario that provides food and livelihood to individuals on social assistance through the creation of meaningful work.
Raw Carrot’s handcrafted, gourmet soups are cooked and packaged in Paris, Kitchener, Mount Forest and Woodstock, Ontario by individuals on the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). This offers these individuals meaningful employment and enables them to meet their basic needs, offering a ‘Hand Up’ as opposed to a hand-out.
