Chickpeace Refillery


Allisha designed the refill store for consumers just like her. Ethical and conscious shoppers that want to know the origin of their products, how it was produced and if the ingredients and materials align with sustainable practices. In a nutshell these are folks that are socially responsible, eco-minded and don’t mind investing a little extra in the products that make their internal and external environments thrive.

Allisha is a huge supporter of the local business community and intends to support as many Canadian made brands and products as possible. Community Futures assisted Allisha through the Business Plan Development Program and followed with start-up financing.  Congratulations Allisha in achieving your dream while sticking to your socially responsible values.
