👶 Little late due to a 'kinder' surprise - Newest vendors - Back to School resolutions ✏

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Kinder Surprise!

Hi everyone!

Sorry, the newsletter is a little late this month! In my defense, I have been quite busy... As I have given birth to my beautiful baby boy on August 31st. Weighing 3401 grams and measuring 49 cm, he is a pure bundle of perfection. Me and my husband are very much in love with him.

That being said, I think I never properly introduced myself. My name is Annick, I have been Simply Delicious' social media guru for a while now. I am the mind behind this newsletter, but also almost all Simply's social media posts.

When I lived in the Netherlands I used to work in an organic cheese store, so I have always been a supporter of the organic lifestyle. Besides that, I used to follow the keto lifestyle.

That is in fact how I got this job in the first place. Being able to work for a store like Simply, that is promoting both healthy lifestyles and local vendors, is such an honor and pleasure at the same time. 
 

Keto for Simply

I stopped my keto lifestyle about a month after I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of this year. I still kept myself active in the keto community, that is how I got to bring in several local keto vendors like 'Mandi's sweet treats', 'Craving Keto' and our newest addition 'Simply Keto' (Don't you just love the name? I do). 

Wondering about this keto community? It is a local group on Facebook that is very active. I love how much they have been promoting Simply Delicious as one of the keto stores in Vernon. I want to return the favor by promoting the group this month as well. It has absolutely been one of the most positively minded keto groups I have ever joined.

A message from Bella Stella Cheese

Dear costumer,
we want to inform you that since the 1st of September, Bella Stella Cheese will nog longer be certified organic.
Unfortunately, the farm from where we are picking up the milk is dropping their certification.
There is organic milk available in the Okanagan, but it is too far for us to get it (Salmon Arm).
We will continue to get the milk from Vale farm. The diet of the cows will be of 80% grass forage and 20% of dried grains from non GMO plants. No corn silage is fed to the cows.
As a general rule in Canada, when the cows are eating more than 60% of grass on their daily food intake, the milk can be considered grass fed, so we will continue to sell our cheeses as grass fed.
The cows will have access to open pastures as well.
There is still Monashee Gold, Truffle and Brie as part of our inventory that will be sold as organic until it is finished. You will be informed when the transition for those cheeses will happen.
From September 1st, all the other cheeses (Yogurt, Kefir and Ricotta) will not be certified organic anymore.
We will have a new price list ready for the end of August.
We did appreciate your business and we hope to be able to continue to work together. If you will decided to no longer be our costumer we thank you for the past.
Thank you.
Bella Stella Cheese.
