“We are so excited to welcome our new investors. As a fan of H.E.R’s music,  I also admire how she supports black-owned businesses and uses her platform to fight for an end to systemic racism. We look forward to having her on board.” said Denise Woodard, Partake CEO & Founder.

“Not only are the products delicious, but I love the story and inclusive values behind the brand. I am excited to partner with Partake and help to grow and support their business.” said artist, H.E.R.
