Snacking Trends Heading into 2022
In addition to enjoying the holiday season with my family, one of the great things about this time of year is reading about next year’s forecasted foods trends. Here at Burnbrae Farms, we like to track ingredient, flavour and consumer insights, so we can continue to develop products that meet the needs of our fellow Canadians. We’re also foodies, so we love to try what’s new!
A True Canadian Horse Breed
Burnbrae Farms recently embarked on a new adventure with the purchase of a team of purebred Canadian horses. The history and development of the Canadian horse is entwined with the evolution of the country itself, and I’m sure most are unaware that in 2002, it became our national horse breed!

Kids’ Snacking Made Easy
Canadians love to snack, and that’s especially true for children. In fact, snacking contributes about 27% of the total daily energy (calorie) intake in Canadian children, who actually snack more than adults (21% of calories). But snacking is a good thing for children, as long as the snacks provide some nourishment. Little tummies get full quickly, so it’s hard to get enough nutrition at mealtime alone. Snacks can be used to fill in the gaps for foods that are not consumed at mealtime.

If you can be just about anything for Halloween, you can surely decorate with just about anything for Halloween! Halloween is without a doubt one of the greatest times to do all and any “do-it-yourself” projects.

Food Loss and Waste
Reducing our environmental impact and supporting our communities has always been part of Burnbrae Farms’ ongoing commitment to sustainability. That’s why reducing food waste is so vital to our work. The average Canadian household wastes more than $1,100 worth of food per year! And with the cost of groceries on the rise in Canada, it’s more important than ever to make changes. Food waste happens beyond the home too: at grocery stores, restaurants, farms and by food manufacturers. Today I’ll share some insights as to how Burnbrae Farms is reducing food waste at our farms and manufacturing facilities, and I’ll add some tips as to how you can help at home, too.
Protein at Every Meal – Including Snack time!
Protein at Every Meal – Including Snack time! As the president and CEO of Burnbrae Farms, I’m fortunate to have many dietitian colleagues who help me stay up-to-date with the latest nutrition research.
