Tomorrow the CBC show Dragons’ Den will see contestants from BC take the floor to pitch their business idea to the Dragons.

Sisters Secret Gourmet Foods is a local company run by (you guessed it) sisters Marsha Simons, Salli Pateman and Joanna Spady. Their business produces all natural products such as granola, chili and sauces and although their products can be found in stores across Canada and the US, they are looking to expand.

The episode on which you’ll see Sisters Secret Gourmet Foods face the Dragons airs tomorrow on the CBC at 8:00pm and I’ve been offered a gift basket that I can give away to a reader.

The Sisters Secret Gourmet Foods gift basket contains:

Sisters Secret Fragrant Chili
Sisters Secret Fragrant Chili Mild
Fragrant Chili Aioli
Original Deluxe Gourmet Granola

To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post or re-tweet the link (including @Miss604 so I can track the entry).

I’ll draw a winner tomorrow afternoon before the show airs so that you can look forward to snacking on your prize as you see the ladies in action with the Dragons.

Fine print: Valid to residents of BC only as the prize will be shipped. Estimated value is $50.
