Gathering Place trading award

Gathering Place Wins Prestigious Award

Our company was recently awarded $10,000 from Campbell River’s NexStream Competition!

The competition, funded and administered by the Campbell River Area Angel Group (CRAAG), with support from the City of Campbell River, highlights and rewards companies who put innovation and community-building front and centre.

This is what they said about us:

"It’s hard to describe the energy you will encounter when you walk into the Gathering Place in Campbell River. Although it’s a sophisticated business with cutting edge food processing, quality control and order fulfilment capabilities, it’s also a joyful place to be where you can’t help but be inspired by all of the laughter and the shared passion for cooking!"

The NexStream team also commended us for putting ethics over profit and noted that our imported spices and regionally grown herbs were the highest quality they had ever tasted. Fine praise indeed!

Our whole team is thrilled with this award because it honours the values that we’ve built our business on and recognizes the work we’ve been doing for the last 20 years: ethically sourcing all our products, supporting small scale sustainable farms, and putting care for the Earth first.
