|Congratulations to TMGT’s Saboor Meherzad for his latest win!|
Saboor has been busy lately, not just working his usual day job and his nocturnal occupation as a TMGT student, but also finding hours in between to run his company, Divine Natural Bar Inc. Divine Natural Bar is a natural food bar that is gluten free, soy free, dairy free and vegan with zero chemicals, preservatives, artificial colours or refined sugars. Saboor’s inspiration came from his desire to find a healthy, nutritious snack for his father.
Earlier this year, Saboor entered Divine Bars in a number of competitions; BCIT’s Lions Lair through Enactus BCIT, BCIT’s Innovation Challenge and New Ventures BC. Divine Bars was awarded first prize at BCIT’s Lions Lair, as well as, first prize in the Entrepreneurship category of BCIT’s Innovation Challenge. Divine Bars made it through to the end of round 2 of the New Ventures BC competition.
Divine Bars are currently sold in seven stores in Burnaby and Vancouver, including our own BCIT’s Stand in the Great Hall. Saboor not only wants his company to provide a healthy snack food product, but wants to aid in the efforts to fight hunger in our community; for every ten bars sold, one will be donated. Saboor and his company are working on a partnership with Vancouver’s Save On Meats to distribute the donated Divine Bars along with the Save On Meats sandwiches given out to those less fortunate.
Congratulations and best of luck to Saboor and Divine Bars Inc!
