In honour of Canada’s Organic Week from September 12-18, we are sharing our promise to provide families with 100% organic, real-fruit ice pops for summer fun all year round.
Why Celebrate Canada’s Organic Week?
According to ChooseCanadaOrganic.ca, Canada Organic Week is “Canada’s largest annual celebration of organic food, farming, and products across the country.” Celebrating organic products goes far deeper than farm to table: it goes from "soil to soul.” The label “organic” refers to seeds, animal feed, or human food that is certified to encourage practices that increase biodiversity and reduce negative environmental impacts while also supporting animal health and welfare (ChooseCanadaOrganic.ca.)
Canada Organic Week is a great reminder for all of us to take the time to learn about the role organic products play in our overall health and the benefits they have for our healthy families, communities and planet. At DeeBee’s Organics, we understand the impacts of organic products for Canadian families from coast to coast. That’s why we choose to make our SuperFruit Freezies with real 100% organic fruit with no preservatives, chemicals, artificial dyes, or malic acid.

Why Do We Believe In ‘Beyond-Certified Organic’?
According to the Canada-Organic.ca website, the certified Canada Organic logo “can be used on products that are 95-100% organic. Products that are 70-95% organic may state that a product is "Made with Organic Ingredients."
At DeeBee’s Organics, we believe that certified organic just isn’t good enough for your family. Unlike our competitors, our SuperFruit Freezies are made with 100% real-fruit organic ingredients with real integrity. We are committed to the highest standards of sustainability, transparency and performance in all areas of our business, including the organic food processing methods we choose. From the fruit we source, to the farmers we work with, to the way we treat our staff, we know that our organic products go beyond traditional certified organic standards. They are ‘beyond-certified organic.’
Did you also know that all the fruit we source come from non-GMO seeds, and aren’t genetically engineered or modified in any way? To Dr. Dionne, fostering a healthy food system has always been a crucial value. We are proud to share that all our products are Non-GMO Project Verified, and that we will always be committed to developing a healthy world that thrives without the use of GMOs.
Organic Is Personal for Our Team
For our team, creating organic and non-GMO products goes beyond the desire to provide a quality product. We know that organic and sustainable practices can have profound societal and environmental impacts on the world around us. Starting from Dr. Dionne’s kitchen, DeeBee’s Organics SuperFruit Freezies has grown into a Certified-B Corporation that brings the most colorful and organic snacks to your family. With what first started as a kitchen experiment with her two kids, our SuperFruit Freezies have grown to be some of the most popular organic snacks on the market today.
