Monthly Archives: November 2011

We came across this article in the Miami Herald posted last month in regards to small firms having a role in global economy. We are a small organization (under 100 employees); however, our growth this year alone has been over 50% and for many years we have been on the list as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada. We’re proud of the footprint we’ve made in today’s society and happy with our size. Although we’re constantly growing we may never be one of the fortune 500 companies, like Apple, Boeing, GE and Google, but we will continue to be paving the way and carving out a space in the heart of today’s economy.

We’re off to San Francisco GreenFest this month from November 12-13. This is the Green Festival’s 10 year Anniversary in which they inspire and promote the connection between change and sustainable progress for people, community and business. The festivities include 125 renowned authors, leaders and visionaries, workshops, kid’s activities, organic beer & wine, vegan & vegetarian cuisine and live music. It’s only $10 to enjoy this event so why not stop by and take it all in? If you do, visit us for free hemp food samples at our booth!

We’re also providing hemp food samples to the following events in November:

Have an event in your area you’d like us to provide product to? Send an email to and we’ll see what we can do for you.

Last month we told you to let us know what you thought about our blog, website or any of our products by leaving a comment and be automatically entered to win. Thank you to those who left us feedback and congratulations to Ryan Andrews for being randomly selected as the winner of our October blog contest!

Because November is Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, it’s a good time to reflect on those who are important to us and who we want to see embracing a healthy lifestyle. For November’s contest we want to spread the hemp love by providing the winner a basket of goodies to one of your loved ones!

Leave a comment below on who you would like to win the contest and why you think they would be a great choice. We’ll review all of the stories we receive this month and announce the winner next month.

Good luck!

At Manitoba Harvest, we are very fortunate to have an amazing group of people that volunteer to be demo representatives of our hemp foods and oils. You can see them out in various stores across North America promoting the benefits of hemp and sampling our products. Check out these awesome shots of our latest demo in Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market in Richmond, VA.

Here is Helen, sampling hemp seeds on bananas – sooo good! If you were a demo team member how would you incorporate other foods into your Manitoba Harvest demo? We’re interested to hear! Let us know by leaving a comment below.
