Our story began 20 years ago when a young Fahim spent his days working in the health and nutritional industry. For as long as he can remember, Fahim’s mantra has been one of the famous ancestral prophetic quotes, “The stomach is the house of diseases, and prevention is the best medicine.” With nearly 15 years of experience educating others about the preventative powers of whole foods, it suddenly clicked… Fahim wanted to deepen his connection with food inspired by his religious upbringing and the tradition of Halal and Zabiha. He planned to use his one-bedroom Toronto apartment to begin purchasing, cutting, labeling, and delivering local meat and cheese as a one-man operation. From that day forward, Fahim made a commitment to not only himself, but his family and community to provide ethically sourced, truly Halal and Zabiha meat.

In his first month, he only profited $100. That may be discouraging to some, but this was never about turning a profit for Fahim. With an undeniably strong passion, Fahim’s only focus was to harvest partnerships with only the finest organic and grass-fed meat products sourced from a slowly developing network of off-the-grid Amish and Mennonite farmers.

Contrary to many of the unethically sourced meat products sold in major grocery stores undermining the livelihoods of local farmers and the welfare of animals, Fahim discovered the significance of creating a direct connection between people and those producing their food. As a young and native entrepreneur, he found value in supporting our local economy and farmers, which in return helps to reduce our carbon footprint.

In 2004, Fahim opened his first location in Toronto. On day one, the shelves were 10% full and puzzled customers were asking if it was a pop-up. By the end of the year, the store was fully-loaded with high-quality, organic meat and grocery products. Fahim was touched by the rewarding feeling of seeing a stranger become a regular, and getting a firsthand look into how their food choices positively impacted their life.

For ten years, Fahim was in that store 7 days a week for 10-12 hours a day. It’s hard to imagine the strength that takes, as the business wasn’t netting any substantial profit. Even still, Fahim would always help out families when they couldn’t afford to shop and was quick to help those in the community who needed it. Never losing his initial motivation, BlossomPure Organic was not a business, but a community resource that sought to enrich people's lives with quality food and care.

Which brings us to today, and our new location in Etobicoke. Fahim’s 20 years of experience as a reseller and distributor for Toronto’s most renowned health food stores (including Canada’s oldest organic store) and chefs has given BlossomPure an unparalleled reputation as the health food expert’s expert. Within our network of local farmers, we’re proud to have established exclusive partnerships that provide us with consistent, highly-ethical, and sustainable animal products. Through weekly visits with farmers, we discuss the seasonal changes, activity levels, and type of grass consumed and its impact on the taste of the final product. Not only do we handpick what goes on our shelves, but we’re also constantly improving through a feedback loop with our customers and our farmers.
