Located in Oliver, Great Bear was established in 2013 by founder Tracy Lydiatt. She was inspired to make a healthy, low-sugar Paleo snack when she was involved in CrossFit training, first baking her signature cookies for fellow athletes at the gym. Today they are sold at nearly 400 retail locations across Canada and the U.S. The company has made efforts to reduce and recycle waste, while sending food waste to local farmers. The company has also participated in a YMCA youth job placement program.
