Dwarf Stars was started by two Calgary-based entrepreneurs (Kat & Gerrit) and has been operating since 2018. They are now selling in 140 retailers across AB, BC and ON.

Gerrit is a red seal chef with over 13 years experience in the culinary industry while Kat has a background in business and marketing. 

"Dwarf Stars Originals" was our first product line which looked like little space rocks (now discontinued). In brainstorming astrological terms we found Dwarf Stars. These are stars that don't look exactly like the other stars, or shine as bright, but still in their own right are classified as stars. The really cool thing is that Dwarf Stars can actually be incredibly powerful when pairs of them coalesce (or come together) - they can even create a supernova or large stellar explosion!

They loved this metaphor that reached beyond their friendship (going on 12 years), beautifully capturing the brand messaging, heart and soul behind our new endeavour. We believe this message of inclusivity is more important today, than ever in our crazy world - that no matter what the outside looks like, what truly matters is on the inside.

That's why they use wholesome, natural ingredients like organic dry-roasted pumpkin seed butter and handmade chocolate made from cocoa mass and cocoa butter. All of their products are vegan, free from the top 10 food allergens with 2 sugar-free (keto-friendly) lines

JK Bakery unlike most commercial bakeries, does not use any preservatives in any of their breads. Their breads are all made by hand right here in the Bow Valley with the best ingredients.

Since JK Breads don’t have the additives and preservatives used by most commercial bakeries to extend their shelf life they may have a shorter shelf life than what you might get from the supermarkets. They suggest the following to store your JK breads:

- If the bread is crusty, store it in a paper bag, a towel or a bread box at room temperature. This will allow it to breathe and retain its crust.

- If your bread is soft, store it in a plastic bag or container at room temperature to keep it soft. You can always freeze your fresh bread for use at a later date.

Evoolution has a goal to inspire you to discover the world of olive oil through better taste and health.

Evoolution stands for the evolution of olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is among the most widely studied foods shown to be beneficial to our health. It’s linked to longevity, disease prevention, and well-being, and it also happens to be wonderfully tasteful. But there’s a divide between what you’ll find down the cooking oil aisle of supermarkets, and what is truly healthful and tasteful extra virgin olive oil. That divide usually comes down to freshness – olive oil is much the same as any other fruit juice, and it’s best when it’s fresh. 

Fresh olive oil means olives picked and crushed within hours, stored and handled with care, and resupplied every six months by taking advantage of the harvest in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Your own sensory experience is the best judge of freshness, and that’s the reason we invite you to try before you buy at our tasting bars.

Evoolution values putting quality first, innovating to bring you the best olive oil experience, and engaging with you to educate and inspire new ideas for great food.

Vresh Foods was started by Vresh as a way to show authentic Indian food. 

He was tired of the way ghee has been marketed in North America. It’s always been “Ayurvedic”-this and “Yogi Princess Warrior”-that.

Vresh still believes that ghee is extremely healthy, though it is not a “Health Food” - It is an everyday staple that deserves a spot in your pantry!

Indians have used Ghee for over 3500 years, and while there are numerous health benefits to including ghee in your diet, the real reason it has stood the test of time is because it TASTES DELICIOUS!

Whether you spread it on toast, sear your steak, fry up some veggies or ‘bulletproof’ your coffee, enjoy Ghee the way it was originally intended: As a part of everyday life!
