Made with Local
Sheena Russell & Kathy MacDonald
This healthy foods company has its heart rooted deeply in Atlantic Canadian foods and flavours. Founded by Sheena Russell and Kathy MacDonald, MwL started as a small farmer’s market table and has blossomed into a business that now sells Real Food Bars and Loaded Oats instant oatmeal in over 100 retailers in Atlantic Canada, and beyond.
Their products are all handmade in Atlantic Canada, using some of the region’s best ingredients. An amazing part of their company is that all production happens at community-based social enterprises, employing folks who have barriers preventing them from working in the ‘mainstream’ workforce. The more you enjoy their products, the more support they can give to local farmers and their amazing production kitchen programs.
