At Choose Life Foods, we adhere to a core set of values that guides everything we create:
We are committed to using ingredients you can pronounce. If we wouldn’t feed a particular ingredient to a child, we refuse to cook with that ingredient.
We are dedicated to sourcing ingredients from ethical suppliers to ensure we use fair-trade and sustainably sourced ingredients.
In the Caribbean, unseasoned food is a crime, we are committed to providing our customers with well thought-out delicious products made with quality ingredients.
Toronto-Native Carolyn Simon and her siblings grew up loving Jamaican patties. When she transitioned to a plant-based diet, she was frustrated at not finding a vegan alternative that she thought tasted good and was reminiscent of the ones she ate while growing up. She decided to start making her own and soon her family and friends were asking repeatedly why she wasn’t selling them. Thus, Choose Life Foods was born, offering vegan Jamaican patties made with natural and quality ingredients!
