C.H. Robinson

It’s your job to make products your customers love. It’s our job to connect the world.

We see things differently.

Hardbite Potato Chips/Naturally Homegrown Foods

The quest for the perfect potato chip started over 12 years ago with just a single fryer and an insatiable desire to make the very best chip out there. We’re pretty picky about what goes into our chips and that’s why we make our chips with ingredients that are free from GMOs, trans fat, gluten and cholesterol. Our unwavering desire to make a chip with the finest and freshest ingredients means that every bag of Hardbite Chips comes dressed in aromatic, natural seasonings. To this day, we carefully hand cook our chips in small batches which give Hardbite an unbeatable crunch.

We use only the best and freshest ingredients. Why? Because great taste and clean living are what we’re all about. BC’s natural beauty combined with our focus on healthy eating habits inspired us to create zesty, crunchy, all-around great tasting chips that fit right in with active lifestyles. Many have agreed. In 2005, Hardbite was named “the best gourmet chip in Canada” in a blind taste test conducted by the National Post.

Since then, Hardbite has continued to top the taste-test charts and we’re fortunate to have received numerous acknowledgements and testimonials from food connoisseurs and our own loyal consumers!

Quejos Ancient Foods

Frances Wong fell in love with the wildly popular gluten and yeast-free Brazilian cheesebuns (pão de queijos) that are consumed daily. From friends, she learned the native traditional family recipes, and coming home to Vancouver experimented with different variations, inventing her own unique version which incorporates all the best aspects of the original, and developed non-dairy variations as well. By using manioc powder, she is able to produce a yeast, wheat, and gluten-free bun with the same consistency as a hearty bread without sacrificing taste! Over the past 12 years since the opening of our present retail store, she has developed 7 varieties of the cheese line of buns, 2 varieties of soya and non-dairy buns, 3 varieties of non-dairy and soy free buns made with coconut milk, buckwheat wrap shells, as well as thin crust pizza shells, some sweet goodies and vegan products such as perogies and pie shells. All of her products are of course deliciously gluten-free and yeast-free.
