What does "Eat.Right.Now." imply?

Eating right in today’s fast-paced environment can be challenging. At Peqish, it is our mission to prove that this is possible!

  1. Delicious, Clean Food. Feel good about the food you put in your body. We use simple ingredients, where possible, that are free of preservatives and additives to make delicious, natural creations. Great tasting food can be rewarding to your body!
  2. Local. We are a local company that believes in sourcing locally wherever possible. We believe in sustainability, and want to do our part for our community!
  3. Personalizing Food. No one person is the same. Beyond providing options for particular lifestyles choices (VGN, GF, DF), we believe that diet can influence health outcomes.   
  4. Quality. Made in-house from scratch using fresh ingredients. We don’t believe in shortcuts when it comes to food!
  5. Transparency.  No gimmicks! When labeling our product, we will not make any claims as to how Peqish's food may improve your personal welfare (detox, anti-inflammatory etc.) without the appropriate level of evidence to make these claims.   
  6. Trends.  We will work in a collaborative fashion with doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, and experts in food and clinical science to stay current with food trends with the view of providing you with unbiased perspectives. Our key learnings will be integrated into the development of new products that we bring to the market!
