We are proud to present:
The Cool Hemp Company Inc

I happened upon Christina's Hemp non-dairy frozen desserts some time ago. Packaged in a simple container with a sticker indicating its contents, the product had that homemade touch with an exquisite taste to match. Apparently the quality of the frozen dessert has spoken for itself as Christina's Hemp has grown into The Cool Hemp Company Inc. The Cool Hemp Company Inc is a values-led family business. Aside from producing an ice cream alternative they also make hemp cookies.

I met Christina and Robbie, Cool Hemp's founders at the Natural Life Expo which was held in Ottawa a few weekends ago. They were busily doling out helpings of their frozen hemp dessert to the hungry masses. Our meeting was brief, but their impression lasting. They started up and continue to run this business with their children and seem to truly love what they are doing. So not only are you partaking in yummy food when you have Cool Hemp eats, you're partaking in the fruits of a beautiful family endeavour.

The Cool Hemp Company Inc are proud to manufacture fairly traded organic vegan Canadian hemp foods. Their Mission is to provide delicious, nutritious, all natural and organic Canadian hemp foods to consumers in the most ecologically friendly way possible while supporting small organic farmers in Canada and in developing nations.

Hempseeds are a nutritiously dense food. They are an excellent source of: essential fatty acids in an ideal ratio for human health; easily digestible complete protein; vitamins and minerals.

The non-dairy frozen dessert comes in three flavours: Cool Chocolate; Cool Maple; and Cool Vanilla.
