I’m excited to introduce you to this founder who launched a rocket ship food start-up brand, Love Good Fats, that just exceeded $100mil in Revenue in a little over 3 years!
Suzie Yorke is on a mission to bring healthy fats back.
A mom, eleven-time Ironman competitor and yoga enthusiast, Suzie spent years adhering to a low-fat diet only to hit a wall in her mid-40s. After reading Nina Teicholz’s best seller, Big Fat Surprise, she immediately shifted to a high-fat, low-carb diet, and felt better right away.
While she loved the benefits of her new lifestyle, Suzie found it challenging to find convenient, good-fat snacks. Seeing a gap in the marketplace and a huge opportunity to help others through food, Suzie developed Love Good Fats, a company that produces high-fat, low-carb, and low-sugar products.
Today, Suzie leads Love Good Fats’ expansion as it quickly becomes one of the fastest-growing bar brands in North America. As a 30-year veteran of the CPG industry, Suzie has worked at high-profile companies such as Proctor & Gamble, PepsiCo, Kraft Heinz, Weight Watchers, and Zag. Utilizing her accomplished marketing background, personal journey, and deep devotion and passion for health, Suzie is on a mission to spread the word that fat is back, and sugar is out!
Suzie has been recognized several times since launching Love Good Fats, including the 2019 Mompreneur® Start Up Award, 2019 WXN Top 100 BMO Entrepreneur Award and 2020 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards Ones to Watch Award.
