Carmen Ng and Evelyn Li, Co-Founders, Ocka Treats
Carmen Ng and Evelyn Li, founders of Ocka Treats, an Australian food-inspired, colorful, vegan sweet treats business based in Brooklyn, NY, whip up delectable vegan cheesecake.
Indulgence + nourishment! Ocka Treats makes a vegan and gluten-free version of the classic NY cheesecake in a variety of flavors made with all-natural ingredients. Founders Carmen and Evelyn wanted to make this iconic dessert to accommodate people with different dietary requirements and to promote plant-based eating. In their own words: “We are both immigrants to New York, but for us, there was an immediate sense of belonging.” They felt that New York envelopes you into its folds, without discrimination of who you are or where you are from. They wanted to extend this feeling of inclusivity and belonging through the desserts they make.
