“Goodfood members tell us breakfast is their most important meal of the day, yet over 40% of Canadians admit to skipping breakfast. With the updated Canadian Food Guide standards, we see an opportunity to marry the guideline of starting your day right by consuming whole fruits and vegetables with the convenience of being able to set your alarm clock 10 minutes later in the morning.” said Greg Perowne, Head of Breakfast at Goodfood.
