Being a farmer is the most unappreciated profession in the world you grow vast quantities of food and if you are lucky and escape the clutches of landowners etc then you may be able to feed your family 2 square meals a day. But then the pleasure of tilling the land and seeing the healthy crop i suppose is a passion.
Jas grew up here working the fields from a tender age and this is where she developed her taste for all things Natural & Wholesome, here is also where she realized the... More
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.

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!
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

At Local Pulse, we believe that together we can make big changes through little choices. Nobody should regret what they eat. Whatever your regular diet is, we strive to help you reduce your ecological footprint and develop a healthy relationship with food via one easy pulse-based choice at a time.
Pulses (beans, peas and lentils) are superfoods. Not only are they super nutritious, they are also super sustainable. Pulses have one of the lowest water and carbon footprints of any other protein source, and Canada is one of the biggest growers of pulses in the world!
Pulses form a special symbiotic relationship with nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the soil. These bacteria are able to take nitrogen from the air and trap it in the soil in a form that plants are able to use to make proteins! Otherwise, farmers have to add nitrogen fertilizers to the soil. These fertilizers are one of the main culprits responsible for the high carbon footprint of most food crops. Pulses are so good at... More

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

Local roots grow deep… Farming has been in the Dewit family for generations. Brian’s grandparents were local dairy and poultry farmers and his parents, Jack and Joanne Dewit continued the tradition with dairy and hogs in the Fort Langley area. In 1999 the opportunity to expand into growing cranberries became a new direction of farming for the family.
Growing up on a farm, Brian is grateful for his upbringing and the privilege of working alongside his parents. He continues to share this love of the land, continually learning from the experience and seeing the literal “fruits” of his labour. In 2010 we began our own separate cranberry farm, planting 35 acres across the road from the existing family farm and joining the Ocean Spray Cranberry Cooperative. 11 years later, we are still passionate about our cranberries and work hard to grow high quality fruit. A couple years ago, we decided to share our berries directly with our local BC market... More
