When my son was first diagnosed with serious digestive issues and

Autism Spectrum Disorder more than 10 years ago, my dear friend

Lotus immediately asked how she could help. Back then, finding

affordable, high quality gluten and dairy free products delicious

enough for my picky eater son to accept, but also low in sugar and

high in protein was a near impossible challenge. Lotus wasn’t fazed,

and quickly starting developing products for me in her kitchen. This

initial labour of love quickly caught on, and inspired her to create

Lotus Fine Foods.  Her values and commitment to create the highest

quality products for a reasonable price remains unchanged and is

cornerstone of her well deserved success.  After all these years, my favourite breakfast is

still Lotus’s Cherry Coconut granola.
