Smoke & Tears


SMOKE & TEARS is a decade-long passion-project turned pandemic-pivot. Founder Shannon Armishaw and Chef Kevin Rickey launched SMOKE & TEARS online in April 2021 as a way to feed friends near and far after exhausted loved-ones expressed their burning desire for bold new flavours to brighten up dark days in lockdown. Since launching SMOKE & TEARS Essential Hot Sauces have won the hearts of a growing community of Friends & Lovers who share these sauces with those they love. 

Award-winning Hot Sauces designed for pleasure (because life is painful enough!)

Healthy Genie

Based in the heart of Toronto, with a mission to prove that a treat can be healthy, delicious and chic! Our product line was carefully created and developed by our nutritionist and founder Maryam Munaf who believes in eating ‘clean’, a term she prefers over dieting. 

In 2013 she moved all the way to Toronto and made it her new home. She went after her dream and developed a successful vegan product line and created an online platform for healthy recipes and tips with the mission to inspire people to live a healthier life. This is how Healthy Genie was born!

The Happy Era

Hi, I’m Domenique! I wanted to create something for my fellow hangry humans out there who were looking for an energizing boost of nutrition that tasted great and was easy to make. Easy, like Sunday morning easy. So I put my engineering background to the task of creating a product that was going to be satiating and delivered with enough protein, fiber and health fats to keep you going.

To sweeten the deal (naturally, of course), I found a way to design my protein from a sustainable source of upcycled barley, contributing to the circular economy.  With the help of good food, get ready to enter your happiest era….

Stush Patties

The Jamaican patty is one of the most iconic snack foods of all times, but as other snack food was getting the premium treatment, being showcased at posh functions and restaurants, the Jamaican patty wasn’t. . . until now.

Stush means proper. Proper means good

Stush patties are proper patties.  Made with good ingredients, a good amount of filling, and best of all, they taste good.

With four delicious fillings, including vegan options, there is a patty for everyone and for every occasion.

Aiva Wtr

At Retea, we’re on a mission to make bubble tea sustainable, accessible, and affordable. We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the delicious and authentic taste of bubble tea without harming the environment or their wallet.

2) You can use our DIY kits to make your favourite flavours anytime and  anywhere.

From origin to cup, I value the extraordinary attention to detail manifested in every harvest to raise the bar for specialty coffee and culture.

Required for an early-stage startup

The Treefrog Accelerator has been amazing so far. The topics have been very interesting. It is very, very much required for an early-stage startup. There were some video information sessions which were for growth phase startups as well, but a lot of the events, legal wise, or accounting wise, and all those specific events were very helpful. We came here through a referral. We’re definitely gonna recommend it to other people.
