Our Story

Connecting Over the Love of Food

University friends Alex Leakos, Shanika Abeysinghe, and Spencer Kerber used to get together and cook meals together around themes like "Korean Army Soup", "Southern Comfort", and more. One chat about "where our food comes from" turned into twenty!

We might've picked up chef skills, but we also realized we had no idea what food stories were happening in our own backyard.

Bessie Box was born to share these stories from our local farmers and fisherman through great food and friendly delivery.

In 2019, Bessie Was Born

In 2019, Bessie began working with one farmer and created a way for that farmer to get their naturally-raised Alberta beef directly to customers front doors.

Bessie had a handful of committed customers and a small team with big hearts. Our Bessie Team delivered orders, answered emails and created transparency with farms visits to ensure their ethical and humane practices.

Grow More to Help More

Today, Bessie works with multiple local farmers and fishermen to create more options for families when it comes to mealtime. We are honoured to have been a part of dinner time for hundreds of families.

We have big plans for future growth to help support our local farmers and bring more healthy meals to your table.
