Hello! We are Catherine & Annie, sisters & co-founders of ZestyKits.

Before we could walk, our mother sat us on the counter while she baked cookies and bites for our family. We were always comfortable in the kitchen and have developed a passion for flavourful, easy & healthy food. We moved to Saskatchewan from Montreal, Quebec 15 years ago. We fell in love with the amazing products created here in Saskatchewan and want to bring fresh, local baking to all of Canada.
