In this week’s episode, we welcome Mellisa Mills, Founder, and
CEO of Spread’Em Kitchen. The Vancouver-based food company makes
tasty nut based dairy-alternatives like cheeze, spreads, dips, and
butter with an aim to challenge the corporate-dominated food system
by offering nourishing, satisfying plant-based dairy alternatives
made from ethically-sourced whole ingredients. And that’s not all —
a portion of Spread’Em Kitchen profits are returned to the
community in the form of healthy eating education for kids and

plant-based food businesses with over one million units sold in
