Born and raised in England and of Syrian descent, Farrah Moussallati Sibai dreamed of having a big family and becoming a doctor, but life would show her a different path. From enduring personal tragedies and loss at home in Syria came resilience, strength and determination. After settling in Austin, Sibai wasn’t able to find the Mediterranean foods her family knew and loved at the local grocery stores, and so the idea for Afia Foods was born. Relying on the recipes for falafel and kibbeh used by her family for generations, she provides American customers with nutritious, delicious, flavorful authentic Mediterranean food. In 2019, Afia was picked as H-E-B’s Diversity Supplier of the Year and became a Chobani Incubator brand. On a mission to serve the community and with the belief that all women and children have the right to feel empowered and safe to reach their dreams, Sibai and Afia are just getting started.
