Meet the BCause Team

It takes an eclectic group to pull off BCause's mission of shaking up the grocery industry after decades of status quo. Get to know the team behind BCause including the team members you'll see delivering your orders across the Island!

"How would I describe the BCause team? Energetic, go-getters that are no strangers to car dancing...I've been told it's 'all in the shoulders'."

Mitch Hawes

Owner, CEO


Mitch has had a unique marketing and communications career. After 8 years working in radio in Victoria he was looking for a new challenge. He eventually took on a role of Marketing Manager for a local food producer. It was there where he sunk his teeth into the challenging world of consumer packaged goods. The good, the bad and the frustrating. Combined with his knowledge from his families business in transportation, logistics and wholesale, Mitch has a well-rounded view of the business which has fueled his desire to shake things up. With his husband, Patrick, and his goofball of a dog by his side, you're sure to see him at markets across the Island or, making an absolute fool out of himself on the BCause social channels.


Dinah Johnston

Operations Manager

Dinah is a real foodie at heart! A passion for delicious, nutritious, and local ingredients, food is where she finds energy and inspiration. After studying Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver, Dinah started what she didn’t know would be a deep dive into the world of local food! From working as a Holistic Nutritionist, running a vegan kitchen, to managing a farmers market and eventually leasing land to start her own farm, Dinah has been in the local food scene for many years! While she is not actively farming right now, Dinah loves goofing around in her garden and eating her way (deliciously) through life. With a strong knowledge of the barriers and challenges within our food system, she is motivated to help create a more sustainable, just, and equitable food system in our community.
