Seeds of the Operation

Living Tree Foods

Started in 2020, Living Tree Foods was born from a dream to make sustainable, plant-based foods as delicious and accessible as their non-vegan counterparts. 

Living Tree Foods is owned and operated by a collection of lawyers and articled students who aim to use their powers for good. In the practice of law, the ‘living tree’ doctrine holds that the way we interpret the world around us and the way we behave within it, should be organic and adapt to changing times and information. With more and more evidence coming out all the time about the health benefits of a plant-based diet, and the increasing concern for animals' interests and rights, there is no better way to embody this principle than to work plant-based foods into our diet.

We have made it our mission to knock down barriers to eating a plant-based diet by making accessible vegan versions of traditional products, being uncompromising on taste and quality, and reducing our waste along the way.
