Ever since we bought one of their loaves of bread earlier this year, I’ve been interested in One Degree Organic Foods. The Abbotsford-based company’s products are not just vegan and certified organic; they’re veganic.
This means that One Degree—the sister company to Silver Hills Bakery—sources its ingredients from farms that use plant-based fertilizers rather than animal byproducts. You see, even foods that are vegan and organic often come from fields fertilized with animal waste from non-organic sources.
Last week, I interviewed Danny Houghton, One Degree’s vice president of marketing and sales. According to the resident of Blaine, Washington, the company plans next year to add cereals to its existing lines of bread, flour, and seeds.
One Degree’s products are sold at stores across Canada and the U.S. In Vancouver, they’re found at Donald’s Market, Save-On-Foods, Sweet Cherubim, Urban Fare, and Whole Foods Market, among other retailers.
