About Wellness Foods Inc:
Wellness Foods Inc was established by a woman dissatisfied with the existing products available to those battling digestive disorders. She had expert support from a leading doctor and dietitian (Dr Kursheed Jeejeebhoy and Fiona Press). Existing products were either drugs, pills, or packed with so many unfamiliar ingredients that consumers might not know what they were consuming. Wellness Foods Inc. was created to provide "digestive health through diet" - with all products being allergen free, preservative free, and made from only a few simple ingredients. "Simply" their easily digestible snack-bar, is now available in over 75 stores across southern Ontario and by direct order on the website at http://www.wellnessfoods.ca.
