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.

Love Good Fats sponsors High Gates, an all women’s bicycle club that encourages women to compete and be active in sports.
We also sponsor Bouge Bouge, a series of running events founded by this amazing ex-Olympian as well as various other cycling teams (Morning Glory Cycling Club) and various kids events (hockey, school fund raiser, etc.).
In addition, our bars have become so popular that we are now receiving an average of twelve requests a week for donations. As a small, but growing, start up, we, unfortunately, cannot support them all but donate over 25 boxes of free product every month to worthy causes across the country.
During Covid-19, we agreed to two major initiatives....we are working with Knix (another woman founded Toronto based company) who have already put in place an entire network to deliver masks, gowns and gloves to hospitals and shelters across Canada. They are now going to be adding our bars to their deliveries. Working together allows us to reduce time and costs, which we will in turn pour back into helping. Our second initiative is in the US, where we have donated ten pallets of our bars to a food bank in New York. We have now given away over 50 000 bars.
