Ep 50. Lori Elstone, Owner of Provisions Food Co. talks about her foodstuffs that are inspired by beautiful Niagara

Provisions Food Company creates foodstuffs that are inspired by Niagara. Lori uses as much local, in-season produce in her products as she can because it makes sense and tastes better. Lori takes pride in making products that can be matched with great local wines, spirits and cheeses.


To Lori, Niagara means access to the best produce in Canada. It is about honouring the farmers who work the land and help keep us connected to the land. The wineries in Niagara have elevated our standards for food. Their influence informs food culture, lifestyle and creates a community of individuals who share a passion for delicious high-quality foods and spirits.

A benefit to seeking out high quality ingredients is that they can stand alone. That’s why Lori’s ingredients lists is short and simple. It’s why her recipes are simple too. Lori believes it’s getting harder than ever to navigate the world of food, so she likes to cook in small batches and keep things as simple and natural as possible.

About Interview Host View all posts Author website

Olivia Maeder

My name is Olivia Maeder and I am an interview host at behindthebiz.org interviewing leaders, authors and inspirational speakers.

I go to Ryerson University taking a passion in interviewing, broadcasting and meeting new people. Although heels and business woman attire with broadcaster “Ron Burgundy” hair while reading the news in my main interest and passion, I am a huge outdoor girl who would jump in any lake, climb any tree or sit under the sun in any temperature of weather.

I take great passion in peoples stories and will go to many lengths just to find the true news or heart in any story. I am sensitive and respectful when it comes to personal interviews and with great pride I am eager to get to the bottom of anything and bring out the truth, making it a great story.

Anyone I meet I absorb it as a great opportunity that I am lucky to have.
