Canada’s original sprouted grain, Non GMO bread
For over 25 years we’ve focused on inspiring healthier living through healthier choices. Because we believe that lifestyle and nutrition are significant to people’s happiness. We contribute to the health and well-being of our customers by baking organic sprouted grain, non GMO breads that not only taste great but are also some of the healthiest available.
Our breads, bagels and buns are high in fibre and have a wholesome nutritional profile. Sprouting the grains before we bake them unlocks even more nutrients.
