Our founder is a passionate supporter of farmers’ markets, local mom-and-pop stores, and the vibrancy of traditional bazaars.

Noticing that many small businesses in his neighborhood were struggling to survive, discovering first-hand the health benefits associated with having nutritious foods on our plates, and putting decades of global retail work to local good use, the idea for BiziBAZA® was born.

All products sold on BiziBAZA® are healthy, natural and handmade by local artisans.
