Women Owned Businesses
Lee Ann Luchka – When I started sharing kombucha with others, it was difficult to get quality cultures, equipment and brewing information in Canada. So I stepped up and filled that gap.
Puja Vij – Moving back to Calgary from Houston in 2015, I started to suffer from skin and hair issues while my husband had issues with his toe joints. Determined to find a natural solution to our problems, I tapped into the knowledge of Ayurveda and other home and natural remedies that I had experienced living in India, Namibia and Angola. Frönaturals was created to share with our customers our own experiences with these 100% pure, cold-pressed beauty oils, plant superfoods and small-batch distilled essential oils, the benefits of which we, as a family, had personally experienced.
Anna Wa – After welcoming my first-born child, I had a hard time finding simple, organic products that my baby could cuddle and safely love. We created a line of organic cotton baby loveys that also have organic cotton stuffing instead of polyester. These products are not chemically treated or chemically pre-shrunk, so parents can rest assured their loved ones are not exposed to harsh chemicals.
Innovators & Homemakers
Desmond Tsui – We wanted to personalize and bring back the simplicity in making coffee! However, coffee making nowadays can involve some very expensive, high tech machines. Unable to find a quality solution, we decided to make our own Stainless Steel Pour Over Coffee Filter. This is a filter that does not require any paper, which can take away the essential aromas of the coffee, offering a bolder and more flavourful coffee experience. It allows anyone to experiment and personalize their morning routine!
Chen Deng – LAMOSE started with a simple mission: reduce single-use waste by creating best-in-class reusable water drinkware. We name our products after Canadian landmarks and we hope it inspires our customers to travel the country, leaving no waste behind.
Miriam Handfield – When a little boy broke down in front of my handcrafted jewellery booth because there was nothing for him at the local farmers market, I knew I had to do something. After six months of product research and studying Canadian toy-making laws, I developed an initial line of toys geared for boys, including character bowling games that could be used for storytelling and math.
Family Focused Businesses
Aja Horsley – I was formerly an Environmental Scientist working on urban agriculture and beekeeping projects. During this time, I noticed a gap in the honey market – there were no bee-friendly, innovative, health-conscious products. Even worse, the honey at the grocery store was often fake, wasn’t locally produced and had terrible, old-school branding. So I started Drizzle!
Stella Benson – I was previously in the finance industry, but am now a mother of three with a husband that travels a lot as an engineer. In 2017, I started searching for a business opportunity that would allow me to set my own schedule so I could have more flexibility and freedom to be with my family. After researching, we found ASM (Amazing Selling Machine), joined it and started selling on Amazon in June 2017. We decided to offer products that would provide a flawless look, with bold, beautiful eyes and face in minutes. Additionally, we wanted to focus on products that are high quality, all at an affordable price.
Coast to Coast
Products from Canada based small & medium businesses.
Chai(Tea) is my first product which brought me into the food industry in Canada. Another important ingredient of Indian cooking is the spices. Spices are a powerful component of Indian food. So to stay in power, we make our own spice blend from scratch. These spice blends have no preservatives or additives. All-natural ingredients to cook with. What we cook with, is now on the shelf for sale. No secret ingredient but just pure love and flavor to share with everyone.
