Favourite Spent Goods product: Sourdough Beer Bread

Chan, Content editor

I’ve never understood the term sweetbreads.

They’re not sweet and they’re definitely not bread.

It’s totally misleading.

Yukari, Operations

I was born and raised in Tokyo and came to Canada in April 2018. Through an experiential language learning program called On the Spot Language, I met the founder Dihan and even my husband Jake. He and I love spent goods products especially beer bagels which are so moist and chewy. We enjoy them for lunch every weekend.

In the future, I want to be a social worker.

Seshi, Accounting

(a little how-to): Seshi = Say-She

Strong believer in eating dessert first, wannabe grammar aficionado, and attempting to raise two warriors.

Personal mantra: just keep swimming

Favourite Spent Goods product: Runny egg on an open-faced English Muffin with a side of arugula. The warriors approve too. And they have…how shall I say this…discerning tastes.

Natalia Pereira – Sustainability Advisor

Born and raised with the sun, I brought my energy and enthusiasm to Canada to continue support businesses that incorporate and steward ESG factors into their ownership practices.

I love the quote “Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food”, but I would just add that sweets are also important for mental health!
