Our story

Hi, I'm Jana! I created nomz with a simple goal: to help people live happier, healthy lives.

A Sweet Start

My journey started in 2013. I had learned about the negative impact of refined sugar and wanted to cut it out of my diet. I wondered, what if there was a way to satisfy my sugar cravings with something healthy and delicious? I loved baking, so I started making healthy versions of my favourite desserts. One of these was a chocolatey, nutty and sweet snack, known as an energy bite. Anytime I craved something sweet, I reached for these energy bites. They completely satisfied my desire. Eliminating refined sugars became easy with these by my side. I had more energy, more clarity, and slept better. I was much happier.

I spent the summer months that year on the Moose Cree Indigenous Reserve in Northern Ontario. I tried my best to eat healthy, but food insecurity was, and still is an issue.

When I came home, I started falling back into my old ways of eating candy and chocolate bars. So, I mixed up a batch of these bites, and took them to my family’s home to try.

My mom loved them so much that she suggested I start selling them. My brother helped come up with the name “nomz”, and a month later, local retailers started carrying it in their stores.

Giving Back

My time with the Moose Cree Indigenous community transformed me. It also fueled the company’s mission to help people eat and live better, across Canada and beyond.

The annual nomz grant provides funding for an Indigenous individual to pursue their dreams to start or grow their own business. As we grow, so does our ability to give back.
