  • (1888PressRelease) March 06, 2019 - TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA – The seventh annual Mompreneur® awards have proven lucky for Suzie Yorke, from Toronto, Ontario, who has been crowned one of Canada’s top women in business by her peers and the community! Suzie Yorke was awarded the 2019 Mompreneur® Start-Up Award.

    Suzie is the Founder and CEO of Love Good Fats, a popular line of keto-friendly bars. 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 bestseller, Big Fat Surprise, she immediately shifted to a high-fat, low-carb diet, and felt better right away. While she loved the health benefits of her new lifestyle, Suzie found it challenging to find convenient, healthy-fat snacks. Seeing a gap in the marketplace and a huge opportunity to help others through food, Suzie developed Love Good Fats just 18 months ago. Since then, the brand has become hugely successful in Canada and most recently expanded its distribution to the United States at all Whole Foods locations in January 2019. Today, Suzie leads Love Good Fats’ expansion as it quickly becomes one of the fastest-growing bar brands in North America and is on a mission to spread the word that fat is back, and sugar is out!
