If you haven’t heard of Hardbite chips, you’re missing out. Inspired by nature and handcrafted in beautiful BC, these chips contain just the right amount of unique seasonings, with just the right crunch. These chips are all-natural, and are gluten-free, kosher, and all but two of their flavours are completely vegan.
Why we love them: We are self-proclaimed chip connoisseurs, and Hardbite chips are hard to beat. With their unique flavours, all-natural approach and small batch production, these are the most flavourful and crispy chips you will ever have!
Port Hardy, BC
What started out as a hobby and side business for Bruce Dirom, quickly turned into a successful family business. They are one of the most popular smoked salmon brands on Vancouver Island, and their hot smoked salmon is hailed as #1 in its category!
Why we love them: They are deeply connected to their community, giving back by sponsoring sports teams and youth events, and many staff volunteer their time on behalf of the company to participate in fundraising events.
Cowichan Valley, BC
Founded in 2008 by Shani Cranston, a yogi, surfer, outdoor enthusiast, and a Type 1 diabetic. This condition encouraged a deeper understanding of the alchemy of food and how it affects our bodies, and the creation of hOMe Grown Living Foods.
Why we love them: We are health conscious and love Cranston’s story. An added bonus is that they are organic, keto, vegan, gluten free & sprouted!
This organic, sparkling water is nothing like you’ve tried before. Packed with 46 naturally occurring minerals, vitamins and antioxidants, this bubbly beverage will keep you cool right through the summer.
Why we love them: We love a versatile drink that you can dress up, or dress down. We like to add our favourite alcohol to turn this unique beverage into a refreshing cocktail!
Copperpot Nuts Inc. had humble beginnings in 2009 as a garage start-up near a small town in Ontario called Coldwater. Now, they have a brick-and-mortar store where they offer more than 20 flavours of nuts, seasoned with hand-crafted recipe blends.
Why we love them: Beer nuts in particular hold a special place in our hearts as a nostalgic cottage treat. They are the perfect little sweet snack, or as a part of a larger snack spread.
Founded by Francoise Briet, a professional Chef who also has a PhD in nutrition and a multitude of other qualifications, Malty & Hoppy Delicacy is truly one of a kind. Perfect for a summer BBQ snack, or an addition to a charcuterie board, the beer you can eat will be sure to become one of your favourites.
Why we love them: We have truly never seen a product like this before, and when we tried them it was love at first bite. Their jellies are slightly sweet, complete with the notes of your favourite beer.
MDRN JRKY was founded with the goal of creating a clean and lean high protein snack as well as a sustainable plant-based snack that is better for both us and the environment.
Why we love them: We love jerky, and being vegan herself, Catherine appreciates a plant-based jerky for simple and tasty snacks.
Bisou is North America’s first health food company focused around medjool dates. Beginning in 2018, the three co-founders wanted to provide their family and friends with healthy food that was natural and good for you, hence Bisou was born.
Why we love them: We always have medjool dates in our houses. When we found a Canadian company that makes date bites and date butters, we knew we had to have them in our crates.
Farming the land as far back as 1820, the Martin family has become known for their sweet, juicy apples that they originally sold at farmer’s markets. They take pride in every apple tree that they plant, and every apple that they harvest.
Why we love them: We have been enjoying their crispy apple chips for a long time. They are the perfect alternative to the classic potato chip; crunchy, sweet and satisfying.
