I am happy that you have taken out time to join us on this beautiful journey.
PAXSILE (pronounced Pax - Silay) is a latin phrase coined from, Peace, Be still! one of my favourite quotes in the bible - Mark 4:39.
The name Paxsile was inspired at a time of uncertainty in our family. Following the oil downturn in 2015, my husband lost his job, we had an infant and I was pregnant with my 2nd. Being a stay at home mum after a successful HR/Admin career, with no source of income, was pretty unsettling. I had to turn to the source of my strength, God.
As a new mum, I wanted to be home for my little ones, to be part of those great moments, their smiles, first steps...Also, I genuinely wanted to do something I loved, which is to add value to the lives of people, while at it, earn some income. Dried fruits was divinely inspired and Paxsile Foods was born.
During my research, I found out;
1. I couldn't find dried fruits without chemical additives, suitable for my little one and for me as a pregnant lady, at the time.
2.Research showed diabetes and obesity were on the rise. According to Health Canada, obesity rates in Canada for youths have more than tripled in the last 30 years. 5 in 10 children will develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetime. Alarming, right?
This strengthened my resolve to produce nutritious and healthy dried fruits without chemical additives (no added sugars or preservatives), as a snacking option.
