The story of Basic Roots starts like any good story - with desire and passion. The founder, Paula Bellavance had a passion to create non-dairy cheese that tastes like conventional cheese. After copious amounts of research and taste testing, she developed a brie and feta style cheese and four amazing cream cheese style spreads. For Paula, this labour of love, to get great tasting non-dairy cheese with all natural ingredients out to market and across Canada, is a dream come true.
Basic Roots is family business that includes employees that are like family. From the production team to the admin team, everyone at Basic Roots contributes their passions and talents to creating something better! The Basic Roots story continues as they grow and evolve with the encouragement and support of family, friends and customers. With heartfelt gratitude, Basic Roots thanks you.
