Made with Local started as a simple farmer’s market table and is now a B-Corp
certified food provider available at stores across Canada–but it’s still baked at
home (that is Dartmouth, Nova Scotia!), by locals with local ingredients.
Our B-Corp certification is our North Star–it has kept us focused on providing
positive social and environmental impact with every step we take. Such as when we
partnered with the Flower Cart, a social enterprise that that provides locals who have
various barriers to employment with meaningful work. Thanks to the Flower Cart,
we have staff who really do make our bars with love.
Working out of rural Nova Scotia has meant we’ve always had a strong connection
to local farmers. This is why when we sourced our ingredients, we got the whole
community involved–there is Tom Cosman, our honey supplier providing the delicious
honey for our bars, there is David and Evelyn Ernst our cranberry farmers, and our friends at
Nuts to You nut butters and Oak Manor Farms who provide nut butters and hearty oats.
Proof that good food comes close to home!
Our mission is to continue nourishing our local community through local suppliers
and social enterprises and to be the voice of intuitive, mindful nourishment in your grocery stores' snack aisle.
