Haste is a transformative feeling, for life in general, but also in the way of consuming.

For the past 5 years, there has been a visible movement towards consuming organic products in North America. In Canada, organic is regulated by the government and must follow national standards. There are over 3780 organic farms in Canada covering 953 thousand hectares of land. Supporting local organic farmers and producers is more than just a trend it’s a new way of thinking, shopping and eating for young Canadians.
Total annual retail sales of certified organic products in Canada are approximately 5.4 billion up from $3.5 billion in 2012, and 66% of Canadian shoppers are purchasing organic items weekly.
