Supplier of the Year 2011

The Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CASC) in 2011 presented Kii Naturals with the "Supplier of the Year" Award.  Acknowledging their growth and development, export sales growth and major accomplishments.

A dynamic natural foods manufacturer, Kii Naturals, aims to "deliver to its customers the best the earth has to offer".  With product lines ranging from artisan crisps to premier seasonings, herbs and spices and superfoods sourced from around the world, Kii Naturals is committed to quality.  Kii's owners have personally visited the overwhelming majority of their global ingredient producers to be assured of high quality farming and production methods.  Given their personal commitment to quality, Kii Naturals invested in practices aligned to Safe Quality Foods 2000 accreditation and was awarded the Safe Quality Foods 2000 accreditation in 2010. 

In 2010, with a focus on innovation and growth, Kii Naturals augmented their natural ingredient product lines with innovation and healthfull flatbreads, and they continue to innovate with a soon-to-be-launched "infused oats" product that gives consumers a seamless taste and flavour experience. Boasting a Fortune 500 client list ranging from Starbucks to Walmart, and Whole Foods to Loblaws, Kii Naturals has achieved a phenomenal 47% revenue growth and 63% export sales growth over the past 2 years.  Clearly, Kii Naturals is rapidly achieving its goal of becoming a North American leader in natural foods.
