The Vegetarian Butcher is proud to support local BC food producers, who work hard to give us some of the highest quality food on the planet. Here’s a short list of some locals we support:
Vuvami Foods – Umami Bomb
Vegan, made in Sidney BC, non-GMO and small batch. Add bold, savoury, spicy flavour to your dishes. Especially delicious on noodles and rice, veggies, and in wraps. You can use Umami Bomb as a dip, which makes this high-quality product especially popular with charcuterie boards, and dip-worthy appetizers.
Black Sheep Vegan Cheeze
Some of our most popular cheeses come from Black Sheep Vegan Cheeze in Armstrong. Try their herbed Vozzerella on pizza, designed for taste and melting qualities. Grate from frozen onto pizza or vegetables – then toast.
Sajiva Kombucha – organic & raw
From their brewery in Kelowna, Sajiva Kombucha delivers the very best in Kombucha quality, for incredible taste and benefits for heart, brain and gut health. Kombucha is a naturally effervescent fermented tea originating in the far east around 2,000 years ago.
Specialty vegan food made in Penticton BC. 100% plant based and gluten free. All of their products contain pulses such as dried beans, lentils or peas. Their products are not only delicious, they are high in protein and fiber and very low on the glycemic index, so great for diabetic diets. Try their tangy, tasty sharp cheddar made with local gluten free beer for extra sharpness.
Charlotte’s Dried Okanagan Plums
Italian prune plums grown in Kelowna, sliced and pitted from frozen. They are then thawed in small batches and transported to a local facility to be dried. Enjoy them in smoothies and baked fruit recipes. They are keto friendly, and although sweet, are within the moderate carb range with 10 grams of net carbs per 100 grams of fruit.
We invite you to come into our stores in Gastown and Kelowna to browse for local products. Questions? Give us a call.
