How a business was started out of adversity

My father was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. As frightening as this diagnosis was, he walked away from the advice of his doctor in search of other answers. In spite of being devastated and overwhelmed with uncertainty, rather than focusing on his fears, he resisted the temptation and shifted his focus more on the possibilities for a more positive outcome. As he researched the globe it soon became apparent that certain dietary practices and lifestyle changes could provide therapeutic benefits. Benefits that might help extend his life. Because sprouts have the highest concentration of nutrients, more than at any other stage in a plant’s life, this made sprouts an excellent addition to his diet. They were nutrient-dense, quick, easy, and convenient to add to almost any meal. However my Dad found that most supermarkets had wilted, half spoiled sprouts that were imported from the US.

What he was looking for, and needed, was something that was robust, alive, safe and at its prime in terms of nutrients. 

“Sprouts are baby plants in their prime. At this stage of their growth, they have a greater concentration of proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, RNA, DNA, bio-flavinoids, and T-cells than at any other point in the plant’s life, even when compared with the mature vegetable”. 

So, in 1982 we started our Sprout family business and began growing sprouts in Alberta for the Canadian market. The facility quickly grew as we took over the market with a superior product.

Since then we’ve grown and evolved. 

From the beginning we’ve resisted using anything that would compromise the integrity of our sprouts, this means we avoided all preservatives, chemicals, and sanitizers.

What makes us uniquely different…..

For over 40 years we’ve evolved as a leader in the industry both in terms of food safety and technology.

We use state-of-the-art methods, procedures, and tools to achieve the highest food safety standards in the industry. 

Eventually CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) mandated that all sprouts be sanitized.

To abide by CFIA’s mandate, extra steps were identified and implemented so that each aspect of the growing cycle

follows the protocols that contain gentle and affective interventions. 

The safety footprint of our proprietary protocols are revolutionary and set the highest standards in the industry.

We’ve stayed true to our families mission – a good life begins with good health.
