Although Black businesses need support for consumers all year long, the holiday season is the best time to make it happen. According to LendingTree, Black people make up 12.8 percent of the total U.S. population, but only 2.4 percent of businesses are Black-owned.

Several retailers have taken the initiative to promote Black businesses, but Target has become a key player in this effort after announcing last year that they set a goal to invest $2 billion in Black-owned businesses by 2025. In just one year, they have already increased the amount of money spent with Black-owned companies by more than fifty percent and have also doubled Black-owned brands on their shelves to more than 100.

In addition, Target also launched a program called Forward Founders to help fledgling Black-owned businesses build their wealth and introduced the Roundel Media Fund which will award more than $25 million in financing to Black, Indigenous, and people of color brands by 2025.

Here are five Black-owned brands you can add to your cart.
