The original All-Purpose-Baking Mix, made its Canadian retail debut in Costco in 2014 and proved to be a huge success. Since then, Cloud 9 has continued to develop its line of gluten-free mixes that never compromise on taste or texture.

“It was our goal from the very start to ensure that our gluten-free products were as good if not better than wheat based baking products,” said Mike Betcher, President and Founder of Cloud 9 Specialty Bakery in New Westminster BC. “We wanted to ensure that our products worked in both home and commercial baking applications so we built our own bakery to make sure our recipes worked. The following that we gained from our one location has inspired us to continue to expand our product line and keep making our customers smile.”

Cloud 9 was created with the intent of providing a delicious alternative to traditional products and even went further by ensuring that an allergen free,  “clean” ingredient deck would be their base requirement. And to ensure their products met the rigorous standards that they had set, Cloud 9 created its own blending and packaging plant in Burnaby BC which was the first Gluten-Free Certified Dry-Mix Facility in BC which has allowed them to ship products around the world.

Cloud 9 products are now available across Canada with Eastern distribution through Purity Life Health Products LP and Western distribution through Horizon Distributors and Nationwide Natural Foods. With no artificial flavours or colours, nut- free, soy-free, dairy-free, Kosher gluten-free, these unique blends that will have you wondering if they are gluten-free at all.

ABBOTSFORD, British ColumbiaAug. 21, 2019 /CNW/ -- 2019 marks the 30th anniversary for Silver Hills, a leader in sprouted products dedicated to empowering others by providing healthier food choices. Based in Abbotsford, BC, Silver Hills was founded on a mission of caring for one another to create a healthier world. Never losing sight of that mission, 30 years later, Silver Hills has more than 20 varieties of its high-quality artisanal breads, bagels, tortillas and buns, including its iconic Squirrelly Bread, all of which are plant-powered and feature nutrient dense sprouted grains.

The concept for Silver Hills Bakery was born at a small lifestyle spa – Silver Hills Wellness Spa in North Okangan – where Brad Brousson was working and quickly realized the need for a healthy bread for the guests. Brad had learned to make sprouted bread from scratch from his mom and was eager to share its nutritional power with others.  Stan and Kathy Smith, friends of the family, also realized the power of sprouted grains and joined Brad to help bake the nutritious loaves. Over time, the trio decided they had something special and branched out to create Silver Hills Bakery in 1989. Since then, Silver Hills has been delivering non-GMO, sprouted, plant-based products to communities throughout North America with care and purpose.

"Silver Hills started as a passion project between friends to bring delicious and nutritious sprouted breads to our local community. 30 years later, that passion is stronger than ever as we continue to deliver high-quality and delicious sprouted products to consumers across North America," says Stan Smith, co-founder of Silver Hills Bakery. "We're so excited to be celebrating 30 years of sprouted power and we thank our employees and customers for making this milestone possible. It's humbling to reflect on the lives we've been able to impact through the power of sprouted grains."

Today, Silver Hills Bakery has grown into one of North America's most successful health food brands, growing from a tiny local supplier to the third largest bakery in Canada over the last 30 years, sprouting all its grains in clean, cold Canadian water under optimal, carefully controlled conditions. Sprouting grains ensures blood sugar levels stay steady, providing energy to power a full day's work or play. Plus, essential nutrients, like B vitamins and vitamin C, are made more available to the body, providing a boost of focus and mental alertness.

Today the company remains a family-owned, family-focused company and employs over 300 people. Silver Hills products are distributed to over 350 retailers, in both natural foods retailers and major grocers, in both Canada and the United States.

"It's been a true honor working for Silver Hills for the past 16 years – this company is my second family - being a part of it is extremely humbling and makes me very proud," says Josh Healy, long term employee of Silver Hills Bakery.

Always a leader in the food wellness space, Silver Hills is also one of the first food brands in North America to ensure its products are free from glyphosate, the world's most widely used herbicide that has been linked to cancer by various experts including the World Health Organization. In addition to being guaranteed non-GMO, all Silver Hills products proudly display the Bio-Checked Non Glyphosate Certified seal, an emerging assurance that more and more consumers are seeking from the brands they trust.
