Natalia Lazic of Seven Spice

Natalia Lazic grew up eating spicy food, thanks to her family’s Yugoslavian roots. With a passion for home cooking, she was frustrated that she could not find a quality, Asian-style chili oil. One day, she and her mother Anna, started mixing ingredients in the kitchen, and before you could say the words ‘chili oil’ Seven Spice Chili Oil was created. The number 7 inspires the name, Seven Spice as it was originally made with seven ingredients. Seven Spice chili oil is available in hot, mild and extra hot.

Alexandra started her radically tasty tea company as a university student to raise awareness of violence against women and supporting local programming for women in crisis. Sarjesa, alongside small farmers, foragers, and suppliers, create deeply flavourful and aromatic teas and tisanes from Canadian and International ingredients. They are still dedicated to their original cause and donate 20% of their profits to Calgary’s Awo Taan Healing Lodge Society.
