Stuck in the Nutrient Void
Whether working from the office or home while trying to juggle everything else, we struggled to find genuinely healthy, nutrient-dense, and enjoyable food that would save us from reaching for junk at times when quick and convenient was necessary.
We’re big believers in super healthy, home-cooked meals but the problem was the in-betweens. We’ve each played different roles in getting this business off the ground but this problem is truly one we had in common.
The Growing Footprint of Food
At the same time, we’re observing what is happening to our planet and are very much aware of the immense pressure that our global food system is having on it. We knew we had to build sustainability into our company’s DNA.
Smarter Food is Possible
We want to make it easier for you to make smarter food choices. Smarter sources of quality protein and other key nutrients are within reach—our current product offering is only the beginning.
To use the most nutrient-dense ingredients possible, with micronutrients in naturally occurring amounts and ratios, accompanied by quality protein, healthy fats and fibre to optimise metabolism and keep you feeling your best.
To provide ingredients with specific health benefits supported by research to help you naturally alleviate and improve on issues like inflammation, suppressed immune system, unhealthy gut, low energy and so on.
To source clean ingredients from the best suppliers in the world, always from Canada when possible.
To use ingredients with the smallest environmental footprint possible by focusing on plant-based, on high-value added by-products, and on low energy/resource intensity foods.
Why This Effort is Critical
Since 2001, Canada has lost over 40 million hectares of tree cover, equivalent to a 10% loss of our forests. We unfortunately cannot rely on governments or multinationals alone to fix this problem, so we’re joining in on the effort and taking action, thanks to your support. Businesses and consumers together need to take responsibility for the environmental footprint of their consumption. No solution is perfect or addresses every aspect of that footprint, but initiatives like this, if widely supported, can go a long way.
Why This Effort is Critical
All of our products are made in Canada and we source as many ingredients as possible here. If it grows here and is processed here, we buy it here. Marine collagen, cricket powder, hemp, flax, sunflower seeds, and oats are just some of our Canadian-sourced ingredients. Whenever an ingredient is not available here, we get the word out and keep checking in with our suppliers.
We sincerely believe that Canada can become a major food supplier to the world, not just for commodity ingredients, but for high-value added consumer packaged goods that create jobs here. We’re already successfully exporting to the US, a testament to the quality of our products which are standing out in a crowded marketplace.
We’re available in health food stores across the country. If your local store doesn’t carry Landish, please ask them to—we’d be infinitely thankful!
