Alkeme Foods
We're On A Mission to endlessly strive for a better food system Founding Alkeme was the culmination of a life long frustration with the lack of nourishment found in products on grocery store shelves.  Instead, we found lengthy ingredient labels full of additives, binders & stabilizers leading to a deterioration in the health and wellness of us and those around us. As a gluten sensitive consumer, Melinda set out on a mission to make our reinvented gluten free breads the old-fashioned way using wild fermentation.   Alkeme is dedicated to introducing nourishing and delicious products to the market but will also work to be a company that leaves a positive impact on the world around it. For the health of people and our planet. We're so excited to share our products with you!  As true foodies at heart we know how meaningful it can be to find products that are delicious, as well as nourishing to your health and well being.  We hope that you enjoy all of them and...

Angkor Harvest
Our roots trace back to Cambodia; guided by an immense desire to reconnect with the motherland, Panya and Sophea, are honored to reveal to you-the buried Cambodian culinary gems saturated in Cambodian farmers’ care, pride, expertise, sweat and craftsmanship. Born and raised in Cambodia, Panya’s earliest and fondest memories of food come from licking boiled caramelized, sticky palm sugar off his fingers. The comfort of family and food emerged from sitting with his family around a meal of fragrant soup, and steamy, tantalizing aromatic white jasmine rice, cultivated by his parents on the family’s land in Kom Pong Speu, Cambodia.

Bee Kind Honey Infusions
About Us “When one door closes, another one opens” Born and raised in BC, farming has been a passion since I was a young adult living in Pemberton, raising chickens, turkeys and pheasants.  Animals have always been an important part of my life.   In 2012, a tragedy struck our family and left me to raise my two young children on my own.  Our lives changed in a matter of seconds that day, but little did I know at the time, it was to be a valuable lesson in life.  Going forward, we lived our lives with new meaning and purpose, recognizing the fragility of life and learning to prioritize the people we love and the things we love doing.   As our housing needs changed while living in the Lower Mainland, so did the size of livestock we kept.  Living on a small city lot, my only option was honey bees.  Keeping them ignited a new passion and in 2019 my formal education began in Commercial Beekeeping.  Bee Kind Honey Infusions was born that same year with the...

Cartems Donuts Inc.
Cartems was literally born out of a dream - Cartems’ founder, Jordan Cash, went to bed one night and woke up with a vision of opening an amazing donut shop, even going so far as foreseeing its name– ‘Cartems’.

We source ingredients from as close to home as possible, and organic wherever we can. Here at Cartems, our goal is simply to make the best donuts possible.

Christopher Norman Chocolates
Christopher Norman Chocolates Story  We started out in a little kitchen we built in John Down’s art studio. Soon, we took over the entire studio and the space next door. .  . and we had a staff! Martha Stewart came by, we had outdoor receptions - it was a lot of fun and lot of work.  Once we outgrew that space, we moved down the street from the NY Stock Exchange, as part of a Downtown Redevelopment group. Christopher Norman Chocolates were in the NY Times quite a bit, in Food & Wine, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, as well as on television. We did a lot of Japanese television from there. We had sessions with university students and elementary school students. We did everything from our downtown location! Unfortunately, we both became quite ill, and we ended leaving after 10 years.  After a few years of  rest, we resurfaced on the BC West Coast.  Boy, is it different here, and we’re loving it!

Crave Stevia
The Crave Stevia story began in the beautiful city of Nanaimo, British Columbia. Founders Rob and Leanna Hatch had been searching for a healthy alternative to sugar. Unfortunately, back in 2000, there were primarily artificial sugar substitutes on the market that left a bad after taste and were unhealthy. So, Rob and Leanna began experimenting with a South American plant called stevia. Stevia extract provides up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar but with zero calories. Now, people with weight problems or other health issues could satisfy their sweet tooth and not worry about calories or sugar’s adverse health effects. Leanna had more than thirty years of experience in the natural health industry, and Rob had decades of business management experience. They knew the damage sugar caused the body and were determined to provide Canadians with an option to reduce their sugar intake without sacrificing sweet flavour. In 2002, they created Crave Stevia. They began offering pure stevia extract in a... More

FUME-eh Gourmet Foods
Many moons ago while on holiday Chris and Paula were sitting in a brew pub in San Francisco  and they tried their very first warm smoked olive.  To say that that moment was life changing would be an understatement!  They returned to British Columbia after this epic moment without the faintest idea just how big of a change was on the horizon. Over the next few years they searched to find smoked olives to purchase but did not succeed. Finally, both being Chef's and owning a gourmet food store, they decided it was time to try and make them themselves and sell them.  A smoker was purchased, mistakes were made, lots of olives were eaten and then...voila! The perfect combination was at hand.  A bottle of wine later a name for this new venture was created and the rest is history.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Molbani Tea Company
Great Taste, Less Waste! Why does tea have to be so wasteful? In 2016, the  average Canadian consumed 264 cups tea . Approximately  94% of those cups used a tea bag . With roughly 37.5 million Canadians today, that amounts to… 9.43 billion tea bags a year!  That’s a whole lot of waste just for convenience!

Northern Greens
QuantoTech’s vision started through a love of indoor farming forged due to cold winters in Lethbridge, Alberta. QuantoTech was founded by a daughter-father duo who quickly found a strong team of like-minded and experienced individuals with the goal of creating technology that can be used to expand access to fresh food in locations and climates where traditional farming methods are ineffective.  The goal has always been to develop technology that allows for the growth of hyper-fresh and hyper-local produce on any scale. QuantoTech’s highly scalable vertical farming technology allows us to operate a number of micro-farms extremely close to the consumer minimizing the carbon footprint of our farms and the time produce spends travelling. By reducing the time produce spends travelling or in storage, thanks to the help of the DirectFood.Store, we are able to ensure the freshest and highest nutritional value produce available.  The QuantoTech team designs the LED lights, hydroponics, climate...

Okanagan Pasta Company
Welcome to Okanagan Pasta Co. Everything started with Cansu's passion for eating pasta . Each trip we took to a different country or a city, finding the fresh pasta was her number one priority. The year 2020 proved to us, once again how important life is. Without love and passion, it is tough to enjoy life itself. During the global lockdown, we had the chance to stop and listened to ourselves. Soon we rediscovered our love for cooking again, and pasta was the favourite of all.  Both of us have a Bachelors's degree in Culinary Arts and Management and a College degree in Pastry Arts. We both have over ten years of work experience in the Culinary Industry. A small community kitchen in Kelowna, BC, paved the way for us to start building our passion slowly but surely. Old kitchen notebooks from our University years had many pasta recipes. However, they needed fine-tuning and adjusting to showcase 100% organic Canadian Durum flour and freshest BC farmed eggs together with the... More
