Position: Fermentation assistant and delivery driver
Company: Marley loves your guts!
Location: Ottawa, Ontario

Marley loves your guts is Ottawa’s probiotic local food subscription box. We make small batch artisanal ferments and probiotic sodas throughout the growing season (June to December) and deliver them to our subscribers once a month. Our ferments are inspired seasonally and we buy our produce from local farms and vendors whenever possible.

We believe that our gut health is essential to our mental heath and overall wellbeing and therefore we love teaching people how to make their own fermented foods as well! We offer workshops, DIY videos and classes on gut health and making your own ferments.

We are a social enterprise, helping to reduce local food waste by offering our local farmers a market for ugly veggies and an on-call gleaning service. We love buying veggies that aren't the prettiest and when possible we will even drive to the farm and harvest them ourselves if the farmer is busy. In this way we use veggies that would otherwise be wasted and we support our farmers by reducing their workload.
