Our objective at The Very Good Butchers is to produce organic, wholesome, real food without tricks or gimmicks.  We want to make healthy planet friendly meat alternatives that are accessible to omnivores, vegetarians and vegans.  We are an inclusive company that wants to provide wholesome food for everyone to enjoy.

We are currently unable to produce enough product to meet demand. We are looking for capital to help scale up our business and increase our production capacity.

We are a Vegan Butcher shop which means we butcher beans, veggies, and herbs and spices to create a variety of delicious, organic, plant based meat. You can come into our shop and get your vegan meats and cheeses pre-packaged or chopped up and served by weight. 

We also offer a hot food breakfast/lunch/dinner service including a range of vegan comfort food like burgers, deli sandwiches, poutine, mac' n cheeze, breakfast bennies and more!

We got our start at the Denman Island Farmer's Market. From there, we expanded to Victoria opening the first vegan butcher shop on the west coast of Canada. We had over 1000 people show up for opening day and had to shut down for a week afterwards just to restock everything. Since then we've been struggling to keep up with demand for our products. We launched a Kickstarter last summer to help us expand and raised $64,000 from 700 different backers. We used that money to expand into a bigger space where we significantly increased production as well as our product lineup.

  • Opened the first vegan butcher shop on the west coast of Canada in february of 2017.
  • Regularly sell out at markets, events, and pop-ups across B.C.
  • Won an Eco-Star award for environmental sustainability.
  • Ran a successful Kickstarter campaign raising $64,000 from 700 different backers.
  • Expanded into a bigger space where we increased our product line and hot food offering.
  • Waiting list of 100+ different restaurants and stores that want to carry our products.
  • Launched the "Monthly Meat Club" a subscription box product that we ship across North America.
  • Filmed for CBC Dragon's Den.
  • Over a million dollars in revenue in just over a year of operation with healthy margins on our entire product line.
  • Coming soon to FrontFundr!

We have a Vegan Butcher shop in Victoria as well as a monthly meat club which we ship across North America and we can't keep up with the demand for our product.

Our next big step is to expand to Vancouver with a production facility and 2nd retail location/butcher shop. We've had a huge amount of demand for our products in Vancouver and regularly sell out at markets, pop-ups and events there. This location will serve as our HQ where we'll ship out e-commerce orders and manage our wholesale and franchise programs from.

After our Vancouver location is established and we've increased our production capacity we'll continue expanding across North America!

General Risks
By accessing this site you agree to be bound by FrontFundr’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. FrontFundr distributes exempt market securities to qualified individuals as defined by National Instrument 45-106, Prospectus and Registration Exemptions and crowdfunding exemptions including Multilateral Instrument 45-108 Crowdfunding and Multilateral CSA Notice 45-316 Start-up Crowdfunding Registration and Prospectus Exemptions.
As an exempt market dealer, Silver Maple can trade and underwrite exempt market securities. Exempt market securities are risky investments and you could lose all the money you invest in such securities.
In general, investment products sold in the exempt market are considered high risk because:
  1. They are not covered by deposit or investor protection insurance;
  2. Regulators do not review offering memoranda for completeness;
  3. Private issuers are not subject to the same ongoing disclosure obligations as reporting issuers;
  4. Private issuers may inadvertently, or advertently, refrain from providing an investor or a registered dealer, all the information required to make an informed investment decision.
  5. Many exempt products are not as liquid as publicly-traded securities and you may be restricted in your ability to sell or transfer these securities; and
  6. Exempt products are often subject to a greater degree of “key person” risk than more widely held securities.
  7. There can be no assurances that an investment will maintain its net acquisition value or produce any projected income or capital return. Investment values change frequently and past performances may not be repeated.
  8. Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of securities involves greater risk than a purchase using cash resources. If you borrow money to purchase securities, your responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest as required by its terms remains the same even if the value of the securities purchased declines. See “use of borrowed funds”.
The risks highlighted above are not conclusive. Risk disclosures specific for each offering are reviewed by SMV and are presented within an issuer’s profile page on the platform and within the offering memorandum or other offering documents for the issuance. Offering documents and the risks associated with the securities of an issuer contained therein should be reviewed thoroughly by an investor or an investor’s professional advisors before making an investment.
This web site is for general information only and is not intended to provide personalized advice, including investment, financial, legal, accounting or tax advice. FrontFundr will assess your suitability to invest in the products offered on its platform.
