At Laid Back Snacks, our vision is to create a more relaxed world, one snack at a time. We are determined to use our business as a force of good and make an impact through our actions. With each snack we hold ourselves accountable to conscious decisions at every stage of our operation.
We are proud of our achievements to date, from sourcing local ingredients, investing in recyclable packaging and offsetting our emissions by becoming Climate Neutral Certified. We want our customers to feel great about choosing our company for their snacks and hope to inspire others as we work towards a bright (and tasty) future.
We see people first, inside or outside the company
Giving back has been at the core of our business since we were founded. Since day one we have partnered with The Breakfast Club of Canada to donate a snack for every snack box sold to help feed kids in need. In 2021 we expanded our community contributions to partner with the West Coast Kids Cancer Foundation, stocking the oncology clinic at the BC Children’s Hospital. As a family run business we have a soft spot for organizations that support families in need.
Honest and open snacking
The details are important at Laid Back Snacks and when it comes to sustainability, we want to reduce waste at every step. Instead of just shipping snacks in a box, we made sure the quality of our boxes and snack pouches can be recycled or repurposed. As a BC based business operating in Vancouver, keeping our ingredients and labour local is our way of celebrating our Canadian roots and reducing our carbon footprint.
1. Snack boxes
Our boxes are made of 100% recyclable material and FSC-certified. Also, it’s a great storage box 😉

2. Snack bags
Our snacks chill inside #4 LDPE recyclable material bags with resealable zips! No single-use plastics here. Give each bag a second life by handing it over at your nearest recycling dropoff!
Keeping our ingredients and labour local and Canadian is something we’re proud of. Why? We want only more healthy snacking fun, not more emissions.
Our snack boxes are shipped and delivered by Canada Post, which uses hybrid and low-emission vehicles.
5. Certified B Corporation
As a mission-driven company, our B Corp certification highlights our commitment to the environment and our dedication to ethical and socially responsible business practices. Each time a decision needed to be made we asked the question, how will society and the environment benefit from this decision? The accumulation of all those small decisions over the years has led us to where we are today – being recognized by the global gold standard for mission-driven companies, B Corp.
6. Climate Neutral Certification
We all have a role to play in achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, which is why we worked with Climate Neutral to measure, offset, and reduce our carbon footprint.
