What is Tucker
The name 'Tucker' comes from the Australian slang word meaning food. It was first used by Aborigines as 'bush tucker' to describe the nourishing food they harvested from the land such as berries, nuts, and roots. Little Tucker forges the food market to source high quality ingredients that together makes the wholesome 'tucker' that fuels your day and fills your heart!
Laura created Little Tucker in 2015 when she began making healthy snacks for local farmers markets around Calgary. It simply began as her playground to explore her creative side, love of food, and her humble desire to share her passion with others. Before this, Laura moved from Australia where she grew up in an Italian household, watching her parents spend hours pouring love into a meal, attending family gatherings centred around a table piled high with home-made goodies and watching as her grandparents harvested food from their ever-abundant and highly prized gardens. Once in Canada, she wanted to see wholesome vegan food become more accessible. She created Little Tucker to devote herself to doing just this – providing people with beautiful, real food that is easy to enjoy every day. She is continually committed to showing people how simple food can be enjoyed and help your body live to its full potential.
