This list of Black-owned B2C businesses in London is a result of collaboration across our global community and is by no means exhaustive. There are so many more incredible businesses out there and we welcome all suggestions. We have also listed some local initiatives for you to donate to, if you can. We’ll be updating this guide regularly, so if you feel like sharing, please email here. We'd like to thank London-based, Kaio Grizzelle, as well as other contributors who asked to remain anonymous, for helping us put this together.
