July 21st is Annual JunJun Day & ShaSha Co. Cultural Diversity & Respect Day!

In honour of our first teacher, Shasha’s mother, Mrs. Azarmdokht Hezareh Navazesh*
Inaugurated by: CEO Shasha Navazesh July 2021

On June 11th, 2021 ShaSha Bakery lost a near and dear part of our Team; our first teacher, first inspiration, and first baker Mrs. Azarmdokht Hezareh Navazesh. As the mother of our founder and CEO, Shasha Navazesh, she was the driving force behind the establishment of our Bakery.  She inspired in him with her love for baking, her love of all crafts, and most importantly, her love for life, vitality, and respect. To honour and celebrate her life, vision, and all the goodness she brought to our world, we are establishing a Company Day to celebrate Culture, Life, Love, and Motherhood. In addition to our Company Celebration, we will also be making an annual donation of goodies to a local charity nominated by our company staff.

From this year forward, every July 21st shall be celebrated as the ShaSha Co. Cultural Diversity & Respect day.
