Eating healthful, gluten-free foods has its challenges, as you've no doubt discovered. Producing healthful, gluten-free foods has its own challenges. We prioritize local economies where we can, but never at the expense of safe ingredients. And due to the nature of our ingredients, many are simply not produced or available in Canada from safe gluten-free and allergy-friendly sources. We are constantly working on supplier relationships to address product origin ethics and to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible.
We are proud to use as many local ingredients as possible to support other Nova Scotian producers in efforts to encourage organic, ethical, sustainable farming practices and bio-regionalism.
We would like to extend a huge thanks to all of our suppliers who have helped us get off the ground. Your support, encouragement and creative problem-solving have been greatly appreciated.
