Afrocart has shipped orders across Canada and the U.S., and as far as France and the U.K.The two friends-turned-business partners also make local deliveries themselves.”When we deliver the products we get that feeling that we’re actually helping the customers out,” said Mohammed.”We’re on that path of actually influencing everybody’s life in a positive way,” he added. “And I guess it’s just through food or grocery shopping.”
