Top Tier Foods founder, Blair Bullus, grew up in a family that stressed the importance of mealtime and taught him that food has the capacity to not only connect people but to nourish and support an active lifestyle. Blair’s parents believed in the benefits of the Canadian Health Food Guide and strived to bring a balance of nutrition and flavour to each meal. This created a love of healthy food which has guided Blair to create a company that strives for the very best in flavour and nutrition.
Splitting his time between school and athletics Blair, using only high quality and flavourful ingredients, began to develop his own recipes for quick to prepare meals while at university. His passion for high quality nutrition as well as flavour made him create dishes that are standout at any meal yet healthy enough to make you want to serve it to your family.
The goal of Top Tier Foods is to take these principles and make healthy, great-tasting food easily accessible to everyone.
Living a healthy lifestyle is at the heart of our company—it drives us to create our original product line: Quinoa Quickies! We love and chose quinoa as the main ingredient for its rich nutritional qualities, nutty flavour and rice-like texture. We carefully source all our other ingredients based on their flavours and quality. In support of an active lifestyle, we’ve designed Quinoa Quickies to be quick and easy to prepare.
As a proud local food producer we work hard to make sure that we stay connected to and support our community. All Quinoa Quickies are made with 100% Canadian Golden Quinoa grown on the Northern Prairies. Golden Quinoa cooks and has nutritional qualities almost identical to its South American cousin but boasts a richer nuttier flavour and a less starchy more pleasing pearly texture.
By switching to Canadian Golden Quinoa this has helped farmers in Alberta and Saskatchewan create a market for their crops while relieving strain on a stretched global supply of the grain. We are also able to curb our environmental impact by lessening the transportation distance of our quinoa.
We believe that everyone should have access to good food that supports a healthy lifestyle, so we’ve made it our mission to deliver high quality, nutritious food that tastes delicious. To do this, we follow three simple principles:
