We were thrilled to be recognized as one of 100 Canadian companies to watch. NPC Game Changers are creating natural and bio-based products that are better for people and the planet. All founded or led by women.
Founder Gina Arsens and her family were moving to a plant-based diet but struggled to find protein sources that were enjoyable, easy to make, and wholesomely produced.
With an entrepreneurial spirit and a background in accounting & financce, she set out to create Om Noms, plant-based chicken style strips that her daughters and husband would eat for the taste and texture and she would be proud of for the health benefits.
With an extensive and multi-disciplinary background in Food Science, Operations, Marketing, Education and Product Development, Daphne collaborated with Gina to create amazingly flavourful and scrumptious plant-based meat alternatives.
She firmly believes that plant-based foods can be made with wholesome, real ingredients without having to compromise on taste and enjoyment.
