Tamara is a co founder of Primal Sisters Enterprises Inc. Their brand Louis Pasture Pork Crisps has become a staple for many across Canada following a low carbohydrate/ sugar free lifestyle. Along with many businesses, in March 2020, their sales plummeted. Tamara’s resilience, optimism and determination saw this as a chance to re direct their focus onto direct to consumer sales. Along with her sister and business partner Jennifer, they pivoted quickly and made the necessary improvements to their online platform. By the end of April their direct-to-consumer sales had increased by 400% and continues to climb.
Tamara is a proud mother of two young adults. She has always considered her job as a mother to be as a guide and an example of a strong, independent woman who is also a life long learner. Always staying curious and determined to find the answers.
Tamara studied Nutrition at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and worked as an NCP for 13 years. She has been a Training Consultant for A. Vogel Canada and educated others on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
Tamara is passionate about healthy, sustainable and locally produced food. She also loves to see other women succeed and be able to reach all of their goals, while still setting more. She believes having a mentor is important because there are many obstacles to being self-employed and it is easy to give up if you do not have the right support.
