Our Suppliers-Supporting Local Businesses
Supporting local businesses is something we are proud to do as we think it's important that consumers know they exist. Small businesses are the engine of the Canadian economy so the more consumers know about the ones that exist in their area, the greater the chance that they will send their dollars their way.
Below is more information on some of the businesses we absolutely love and support:

Amai Vegan Treats
Jillian Aiken, a food lover who has been lactose intolerant for 10 years, began Amai Vegan Treats as a passion project while finishing her teaching degree. She would make these treats for friends' birthdays and special events for those who could not eat dairy or animal products. As a consumer, she realized that there are not many choices for people who have a variety of food allergies/intolerances or who would prefer to eat dairy/gluten/soy-free. Through this realization, she has put her teaching career on hold and is now committed to creating a gourmet line of sweet treats that are 100% cruelty, dairy, gluten, soy, and refined sugar free.
