Report from the board—June 2018

posted on Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Happy spring! Or is it summer? All of the lovely weather has brought many of us out and about and ushers in a flurry of activities as we relish warm, sunshine-filled days. Your Karma Board of Directors is no exception. We recently welcomed three new board members, Kat Biondi, Julie McKernan, and Rebecca Waterhouse into […]


Almond milk and bee health

posted on Thursday, June 7th, 2018

A Karma member recently approached the Food Issues Committee with a concern about the connection between the almond milk industry and bee decline. Since Karma carries two different brands of almond milk — Blue Diamond, which is conventional, and Pacific Foods, which is organic — it’s worthwhile to consider whether buying one over the other […]


Nutritional yeast

posted on Friday, May 4th, 2018

What bulk item at Karma do you think triggers the most questions of James Byrne, Karma’s bulk, meat, and cheese purchaser? I’ll give you a hint: Read the title of this article. Members are more curious about those bright yellow nutritional yeast flakes than any of the other bins and tubs of bulk products. First […]


From the GM—May 2018

Dear Karma Members, It’s official. Spring has sprung! The local greens have started to make their way through our doors, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come. We’re patiently awaiting the fiddleheads and wild leeks. We’ll let you know as soon as they arrive! I am very excited to share with you some very […]


From the GM—April 2018

posted on Thursday, April 5th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, Having just received the first delivery of the 2018 Ontario spinach and lettuce, we’re getting excited about what’s on the horizon for local food! March and April are some of the more difficult months for sourcing local food as the last of the storage crops get used up and we wait for […]


Ask Reece

posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Dear Reece, I noticed in your last column, you mentioned that exercise doesn’t affect weight. Really? Sincerely, Freely Admiring my Tubbyness Dear FAT, I could just say “yup” (Carneiro 2016)! But instead I’ll say that the more studies I read, the more I think we don’t know very much about weight gain, nutrition, exercise, and […]


Kootenay Co-op in Nelson, BC

posted on Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Karma is the only food co-operative to which I have ever belonged. Until a few years ago, everything that I knew about co-ops was, therefore, based on Karma’s model. When my friend Lisa and her family moved to Nelson, BC, I was curious about how the co-op she joined there operated. If you have an […]


From the GM—March 2018

posted on Monday, March 5th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, It has been a very busy month at the Co-op! We’ve been working hard to bring in some great new products for you with a real focus on reducing plastic and waste. We hope you love the new additions as much as we do. We had a lot of fun researching them […]


Aquabounty’s AquAdvantage Salmon has been approved for sale in Canada

posted on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Between April and June of 2017, approximately 4.5 metric tonnes of genetically modified salmon were imported into Canada and most likely sold in Quebec, according to the National Observer. This salmon is not labelled as a genetically modified organism (GMO), nor does it legally have to be. The GMO Atlantic salmon, created by AquaBounty Technologies, […]


From the GM—February 2018

posted on Sunday, February 4th, 2018

Dear Karma Members, We have been busy working with our social media consultant from Enabling City over the past two months to launch Karma’s first social media campaign! The purpose of the campaign is to help get the word out about Karma and to ultimately drive traffic to the store. We’ll need your help to […]
