Trio Pastry Sweets & Nuts is A Business We Love!
After running their own businesses in Syria, Joumana and her family arrived in Australia in 2014 as refugees. They have now built a family business from scratch, Trio sells Syrian sweets, pastries, and nuts from Joumana’s own recipes.
Joumana (54) and her husband Akram (57), run their store in Carlton while their son Hasher (35) and his wife, run the second store in Pascoe Vale.
Their story began with Joumana working with the social enterprise SisterWorks to develop handmade food in order to become financially independent.
The family started selling their delicious treats at markets around Melbourne while also learning English with refugee and migrant settlement agency AMES Australia.
They now have a shop in Carlton and Pascoe Vale, where they sell food from their homeland in their new country.
The family works 11am – 7pm, 6 days a week.
Definitely a trip worth doing to get your takeaway sweets and pastries this afternoon!
