We believe food is to body, as fuel is to car. To maintain the performance of a machine, the fuel, that is used in it, needs to be of fine quality.
That is the reason why we believe in keeping the ingredients in all our products high quality, simple and clean.
The various ingredients used in our products hold an individual health benefit. When many such nutritional and healthy ingredients are brought together, a super healthy Snacker Yogi product is born.
Bhawna, a new immigrant and a certified yoga teacher, dreamt of brining healthy snacking options inspired by Ayurveda and her culture to North America, i.e. from India to Canada.
Being new in the country, she decided to get herself trained at FOOD STARTER in Toronto to get the formal know-how of the food industry in Canada.
After number of experiments and taste tests at Food Starter, Snacker Yogi became the FIRST BRAND in Canada to launch PUFFED LOTUS SNACKS. Bhawna made and packaged the snacks by hand at Food Starter and did a soft launch at the Vegan Social Event and educated more and more Canadians by sampling the snack at St. Lawrence Farmers Market, Toronto every month after that.
But the journey was not all that easy, Food Starter got shut down and Snacker Yogi was faced with a big challenge to move their production elsewhere.
Beginning of 2019 Snacker Yogi found a new kitchen to process the super healthy snacks and re-started it's journey. After sampling the new PUFFED LOTUS SEEDS SNACK at St. Lawrence Market and number of events like: Gluten-Free Garage, Healthy Moms Toronto and many more, Snacker Yogi found it's place in retail stores like: ORGANIC GARAGE, THE SWEET POTATO, KARMA COOP, THE 4 LIFE NATURAL FOODS and online retailer partner SWITCH GROCERY.
With growing demand and popularity of Snacker Yogi Puffed Lotus Seeds Snack, Bhawna decided to pay the dues to the farmers and cultivators of lotus seeds in India and decided to get the snack co-packed by a farmers' run facility back in India. (This created business opportunity for both the farmers back in India and local businesses in Toronto).
In 2020, Snacker Yogi had big plans to launch the PUFFED LOTUS SEEDS SNACK province wise and eventually nationwide. Sadly, the COVID-19 outbreak affected the entire supply chain for Snacker Yogi and Bhawna's pregnancy at the same time brought the exciting healthy snacking journey to a halt.
Bhawna, a new mama, gathered her courage and re-started the journey all over again. Many partners reassured their faith in Snacker Yogi many others left but Bhawna was determined and did not give up on her first baby: Snacker Yogi!
Today you can find Snacker Yogi Puffed Lotus Seeds Snack in a few healthy food stores in Toronto and order the snacks online as well.
With a newborn by her side, Bhawna is trying hard to get her first baby: Snacker Yogi walking again by brining it into a store near to you, un till then Snacker Yogi will be delighted to deliver the Puffed Lotus Snacks at your doorstep through the online store.
