Back in 2011, healthy snack options were few and far between – and forget about healthy snacks that tasted good! Disappointed by the supermarket, we started baking our own healthy treats and set out on our first mission: Create a nourishing snack that’s made with real, simple ingredients AND tastes amazing.
Made with Local started as a simple farmer’s market table and has since grown to popular grocery stores across Canada, but it’s still baked at home (that is Dartmouth, Nova Scotia!), by locals with local ingredients.
INGREDIENTS THAT FOSTER COMMUNITY
To source our ingredients, we got the whole community involved. There was Tom Cosman, our beekeeper providing us with delicious honey, there is David and Evelyn Ernst our cranberry farmers, our friends at YumFoods who provide delicious nut butters and Oak Manor Farms for their hearty oats.
Not only do we keep our ingredients local, we keep our people local. We are partnered with the Flower Cart Group, as social enterprise that provides locals who have various barriers to employment with meaningful work.
