Best Community Impact


What motivated you to start your business and what core cause do you support?

Hi, I`m Ian Hayzelden, I worked for over 12 years in restaurants as a chef and decided I wanted to focus all my energy on turning my way of living off the land into my livelihood and help others live the best quality of life possible. I want everyone to be as happy and healthy as they can be. Combining wild foods in Kombucha (A probiotic digestive tonic) was the easiest way to improve the health qualities of the foods I harvest but spend more time where I want to be which is the wilderness. I am an advocate for ethical/ regenerative environmental practices in industry, protecting our planets ecology, health and the human body, education / knowledge, zero waste & food waste reduction, community, and mindfulness in consumerism to mention a few core values. CraftWilder Kombucha: 1) Delicious flavours with wild harvested foods (non GMO) 2) Made with only Canadian honey or maple for our Vegan flavours 3) Non carbonated, therefore great for children and adults 4) Made with organic Black tea in very low amounts (trace amounts of caffeine) 5) No use of pesticides, fertilizer's, or bio chemicals 6) All natural with no stabilizer's or preservatives 7) Sustainably / Regeneratively harvested 8) Nutrient dense + probiotic aid 9) A single 16oz bottle is 4 servings, 110ml recommended daily to start 10) %100 original Seasonal flavours

Why do you deserve to win the Best Community Impact award?

I can`t say I deserve to with this award because I know I could have done more to help others if my situation wasn`t so disadvantaged. I could only do what I could in my situation which was more than I did for myself. I also am not the type of person to prevent someone else for receiving an award for something when they deserve it more. I would love to receive an award in my life time for community involvement and if not this year, then maybe next. I want to do so much to give back to everyone in my community and help heal it and the planet, even if it costs me everything.

Why do you deserve to win the Best Solopreneur award?

I don't know the situation of other solopreneurs, the struggles they faced, and I can`t say I deserve it more than others, but It would be absolutely amazing to win this award! I can only hope that others are interested and appreciate the work I do enough to want to support my companies growth, wild foods, and kombucha. Whether I win this award or not, its humbling to be recognized, and I always welcome you with open arms. I share my life with you so that you can benefit from the Kombucha I brew, learn more about myself, what I do, and why. I hope to inspire you to join me on my journey in BC`s wilderness and take your taste buds for an adventure of our local wild foods. Thank you for your support & consideration and I hope to be your source of wildcrafted Kombucha for years to come. Peace and love, Ian Hayzelden CraftWilder
