|Say hello to Featured Member Rootside Provisions – the folks behind Rootside Soda and Esquimalt Wine Company.
Back in 2015 after getting laid off and struggling to pay student debts we decided enough was enough. We needed to set off on our own if we really wanted to make it in the world of food and drink.
We both got jobs in catering to pay the bills and began testing our first recipes. The first batch of Ginger Beer Mix was only 20 litres, sold exclusively to restaurants. We used that money to fund the next slightly bigger batch and dreamt about a bigger stock pot.
Now, 4 years later, we make five products sold across BC, have a small facility in Esquimalt and a big shiny 2,000L tank. Thanks to everyone who’s supported us along the way! We couldn’t have done it without you.
