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 fiber, 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 and artificial flavours or colours. As we grow, we remain committed to making simple, healthy snacks that are fun to eat, easy to share, and hard not to love!
