Update: What’s New at Nu Leaf for 2020
Happy New Year to our valued Nu Leaf Customers!
Thank you for your continued support since Nu Leaf opened 8 years ago. We’ve learned a lot since we first opened, embracing the challenges and opportunities that arise from the continuously evolving food & agriculture industry, and we have some exciting plans for this new year that I want to share with you.
Since the day we opened our doors our goal has always been, and will continue to be, sourcing items that are as local as possible, and to support local farmers in our area. We source from over 40+ local & BC farmers to bring you the best! My passion for supporting local farmers comes from my own family’s history of farming in the Kamloops area for over 30 years.
At Nu Leaf you can shop with comfort knowing where your food comes from and with the assurance that it was sourced with care. I have always been committed to providing our customers with responsibly grown produce, like we grow on our family farms. Knowing where your produce comes from, what particular farm, and how it is grown, is extremely important to me and will continue to be top of mind in our purchasing department.
What’s New For 2020?
We will be working closer with our import suppliers, and our local farmers, to bring you more organic items. Our focus will continue to be local, and we want to maintain our commitment to relationships with local farmers. We will build on those relationships by providing local farmers with the opportunity to grow and sell organically farmed produce to our customers.
This year we are working to reduce, and hopefully one day eliminate, single use plastics by sourcing and providing more sustainable solutions. Our first step in this journey was the launch of Nu Bags Sustainable Solutions, my newest company, which offers zero-waste, sustainable solutions to retailers and consumers. I have been researching and considering how to reduce single use plastic’s at Nu Leaf for a while now, and we’re ready to tackle the hard work behind the scenes to make it happen.
We will be undergoing renovations to revamp our space and create a better shopping experience for our customers. We can’t wait to show off our many local products in a refreshed space. (No closure dates are anticipated at this time regarding our renovation plans.) We know a lot of our customers come to our store from across the city and other communities, and we know many of you are interested in a second Nu Leaf location. We are always mindful of potential opportunities, should we find the perfect space.
We are very excited for all the year ahead and can’t wait to share these exciting changes with all of you!
