Victoria, B.C., Canada. -- DeeBee's Organics produces 100% organic treats with short label, clean ingredients ready to inspire moments of joy in every member of the modern family. For summer 2020, DeeBee's Organics releases in 12,000 retail stores across North America two utterly delicious products, including its plant-based Organic SuperFruit Freezie. In collaboration with Disney, its Organic Ice Wands feature packaging with characters Anna, Elsa and Olaf from Frozen 2. DeeBee's Organics shelf-stable freezies are made from premium organic fruits with zero added artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives and are allergen-free of nuts, dairy, fish, wheat, and soy. Made for the everyday parent and child, DeeBee's Organics reinvents nostalgic treats with nourishing Non-GMO, organic fruits.
At the heart of DeeBee's Organics is Founder and Ph.D. Medical Scientist Dr. Dionne Laslo-Baker, a Canadian expert on the impacts of environmental toxins such as pesticides -- especially in the food chain. As a renowned research scientist and mother of two children, Laslo-Baker quickly earned early praise in her field of maternal-fetal toxicology by winning an array of awards, including "Humanitarian of the Year" (Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto). By virtue of her breakthrough research and dedication to the science behind organic foods, DeeBee's Organics was born. Laslo-Baker cares a whole lot about healthy, ethically-sourced treats for her own kids, and yours.
While in the kitchen with her son and daughter, a spark of genius spawned with Laslo-Baker's family's idea for a line of "Tea-Pops." After initially getting this frozen product in several hundred stores, DeeBee's Organics pivoted to their shelf-stable Organic SuperFruit Freezie, and sales have grown triple digits year-over-year since 2017. DeeBee's Organics is on target to sell more than 30 million freezies in 2020.
"My goal for DeeBee's Organics is for every kid everywhere to have access to wholesome, clean-label treats," says Dr. Dionne Laslo-Baker. "Families making memories while connecting over a simple, organic snack is what DeeBee's is all about. We want it to be effortless for parents to make conscious snacking really fun. We are proud to be a woman-owned B Corporation helping to empower women, children, and families as we thrive to be a force for good in the world. Our collaboration with Disney is of great importance to us as we unequivocally support films with strong women cast in lead-roles."
DeeBee's Organics sources its high mineral content water from the volcanic streams of Mount Etna (Sicily, Italy) where an artisanal food and wine scene has emerged. Organic produce is procured from organic Non-GMO farms with its manufacturing plant leveraging renewable energy; the production facility is also free from the top eight allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy, sesame, and wheat).
