Proudly Canadian Brand Stories – Sprague Foods

Sprague Foods. Made in Canada since 1925.

In 1925, J. Grant Sprague built his first cannery in the village of Mountain View, Ontario, naming it J.G. Sprague & Sons Canning Co. They have been canning in the Prince Edward County region ever since. During the 1920’s and 30’s, canned goods from the Mountain View plant were shipped via boat from Belleville and Picton to Montreal, Toronto, and even Western Canada. In 2009, Rick Sprague, Grant’s great-grandson, became Sprague Foods’ fourth generation president. Rick has steered the business toward a focus on healthy foods with natural ingredients.

London Drugs is proud to carry a delicious range of Sprague Organic Soups, including Organic Tuscany Minestrone, Organic Lentil & Vegetable, Organic Tomato Red Pepper and Organic Sweet Potato Curry.

 

All Sprague products are pressure-cooked for preservation in 100% BPA-free packaging, and their organic certified products contain no preservatives.

“Having been around for so long as a canner, we know from experience that Canadian farmers grow the best organic crops on the planet,” says Rick Sprague, “This is why we only use 100% Canadian-grown organic beans and lentils in our delicious pantry-friendly organic soups. Grown in Canada, canned in Canada, for Canadians. And future Canadians, too!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Proudly Canadian Brand Stories – Silver Hills

For a real Canadian treat, check out this Silver Hills plant-based Bacon Grilled Cheese Recipe.

From an idea sprouted in Lumby, BC, Silver Hills Bread is now a Canadian classic from coast to coast.

When Silver Hills co-founder Brad Brousson was a boy, his mom baked bread with sprouted whole grains from a family recipe. Years later, Brad was attending a health retreat at the Silver Hills Guesthouse in Lumby, BC, and decided he should bake some for the other guests there. This quickly expanded into a full-time project, so Brad partnered with friends Stan and Kathy Smith, and Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery was born.

 

 

“Thirty years ago, if you were organic, you were a bit crazy,” says Stan Smith. “But now there’s a lot of people who are crazy along with us. I think the healthy food community is looking for companies to provide new ideas and solutions and we look forward to being part of that and to discovering ways to make it easier to eat healthy.”

The health difference begins with the sprout. This early growth of the plant unlocks iron, magnesium, zinc, B vitamins, and other important vitamins and minerals, and makes the seeds easier to digest. Sprouted whole grains also offer a healthy, slow-release carb to give your body steady energy.

 

 

All of Silver Hills’ 100% plant-based products are made with nutrient-rich, high-fibre whole grains sprouted in clean, cold Canadian water. Each ingredient is guaranteed non-GMO.

 

Silver Hills Bakery soon outgrew its humble home in the North Okanagan and moved the entire sprouted bakery to Abbotsford in 2002. They’ve been a Proudly Canadian part of the community ever since, and London Drugs is proud to feature their breads across Western Canada.

“When we began the bakery, the sole intent was to aid people in their quest for health,” reflects Brad. “It makes me feel very fulfilled to know that all of the effort and all of the sacrifice that went into making Silver Hills what it is today is really contributing to someone’s happiness, and someone’s health.”

 

 

New Program Makes Pharmacy and Retail Services More Accessible for People with Autism and Other Cognitive Special Needs

August 17, 2021 – London Drugs today announced a new program that will help make shopping experiences and pharmacy services more accessible for people with autism and other cognitive special needs. Partnering with Canadian company Magnusmode, London Drugs will soon offer step-by-step visual and digital guides to help empower individuals with cognitive impairments to access services in the store.

“We have a responsibility to make our retail spaces and pharmacies welcoming and accessible for people with cognitive disabilities, their caregivers and their families,” says Clint Mahlman, President and COO, London Drugs. “Through our partnership with Magnusmode, we are leveraging technology to provide new skills to customers with autism and other unique needs while visiting any of our stores.”

London Drugs customers will soon be able to access Magnusmode’s easy-to-use MagnusCards® mobile app which offers customized digital “Card Decks” that take users through five activities associated with a visit to London Drugs.

The activities include:

  • filling and picking up a prescription from the Pharmacy
  • getting a vaccination
  • making a purchase in the Cosmetics Department
  • making a purchase in the Tech Department
  • ordering prints from the Photo Lab

By making the actions involved with visiting London Drugs more predictable and manageable, MagnusCards® allows customers with cognitive special needs to become familiar with the various steps in advance in hopes of making their visit to a store undaunting. The app provides the user with reassurances and reinforces routine while the cards use pictures along with plain language text to provide step-by-step instructions.

“Some individuals with cognitive disabilities may not have the confidence to visit a pharmacy or they may face significant challenges asking for help from a pharmacist,” says Nadia Hamilton, Founder and President of Magnusmode. “The launch of MagnusCards® at London Drugs is a big step forward toward more equitable access to care, giving them independence and inclusion, and so their caregivers have greater peace of mind when they visit pharmacies and retail locations.”

London Drugs’ MagnusCards® deck will be available starting August 17, 2021 The MagnusCards® mobile app is free for both Apple and Android devices. Customers simply download the app and create a login to get started.

To download MagnusCards:
