About

GFFG_home_8

We are a young food company with the heart to tackle an age-old problem!

GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD stands for “good food” and “good business.” We believe food should be made with only real ingredients found in a kitchen. We also believe that the goal of a business is more than just the pursuit of profit. All of our food is handmade in Toronto using fresh, whole and mostly organic ingredients. Our food contains absolutely no additives, preservatives, powders, extracts or concentrates. We also strive to source as much local ingredients as possible and have partnered with local farmers to source certified organic produce during the Ontario growing season.

Mission

  1. Help Canadians enjoy world foods at home without compromising quality for convenience
  2. Help solve world hunger

Manifesto

Bridge the gap between quality and convenience and between consumption and giving.
