Founder & Head Chef
Away from the kitchen, Kent is an artist and animal lover
with a strong appetite to create high-quality,
wholesome foods for people on-the-go.
An avid tinkerer, Kent loves to create.
When he is not experimenting and crafting in the kitchen
or at Farmer’s Markets throughout the Thompson-Okanagan Valley,
you will find Kent painting, building or on one of the many
hiking trails in the region.
on the outskirts of Kamloops, BC.
How did we get here?
After years of never finding time to prepare a proper meal and tired of not being able to understand the ingredients on his labels, Kent left his job as a Research Technician and entered the kitchen.
Equipped with his recipe book of ideas, a desire to provide people with sustainable, yet delicious, food options and a solid understanding
of how the body digests food and receives its nutrients, Kent created
Local Pulse, a plant-based food company utilizing pulses -
the edible seed in plants from the legume family,
for which Canada is the #1 producer in the world.
Powered by pulses, Kent and his team create high-quality products
that keep you going throughout your busy day,
while minimizing food waste.
