Our Story

Some of the richest farmland in the world is in the Canadian Prairies, which is why we’re so fortunate to call Saskatchewan our home. My wife and I are proud to be living on and working the same land that our families have farmed for over 100 years. As a fourth generation farmer, with two young sons, comes the responsibility to make sure we leave the land better than we found it. This is why we are passionate about organic farming.

One of the benefits of farming organically is having some of the best ingredients available to our family. It would be a shame if we didn’t share it with others. So it also made perfect sense to start a local company committed to sharing our natural and organic foods. Thus began our quest for the perfect snack – because everyone loves to snack, right?

We began making our snacks with a simple goal: to create a clean, healthy alternative to typical snack food. Naturally rich in protein, iron and fibre, we knew that our WHOLE GREEN PEAS would be the perfect base for our first line-up of snacks. Then we made sure we used only the best organic ingredients, dressing every bag of our Crunchy Peas in aromatic, natural herbs and spices. Zak Organics™ was born.

Zak Organics’ CRUNCHY GREEN PEA SNACKS are available in 4 great flavours, SMOKY BBQ, GARDEN HERB, SEA SALT & LIME, and SWEET COCOA. All of our products are USDA and Canada Organic Certified, and free from trans-fat, cholesterol, dairy, gluten, soy, nuts, and artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. As we grow, we remain committed to making great-tasting, better-for-you snacks without compromise!

Our snack promise


To us, this is personal. We’ve been farming for four generations and we’re proud to tell you how we do it. By choosing our products, you get to know exactly where your food is coming from.


Snack better without losing flavour. Every bag of our Crunchy Peas are dressed in aromatic herbs and bold spices. If you can’t stop eating after the first bite, then we’ve done something right.


Forget the pumped-up, sodium- and sugar-saturated snacks and your tasteless ‘healthier’ snack alternatives. Our snacks are made with simple, nutritious ingredients that are simply more satisfying.


We work hard to make sure our snacks exceed your expectations. From planting, to harvesting and production, we strictly adhere to our organic integrity and have a steadfast commitment to transparency.
