The Laza Story

Laza Food & Beverages is an Ontario based company founded in 2009 and is the developer of unique lines of hibiscus tea and frozen treats. 

CEO Melku Gebrekristos brings her passion for quality, integrity, and health to every product that is developed.  Her commitment and dedication to her work is undeniably found in her delicious products and are often recognized and honoured in the community with numerous awards.  Throughout her business and personal life, as a mother of three, she integrates her sense of healthy and nutritious way of living which is evident in her products.

Our products are made from small batches in our hometown of Guelph, Ontario. They are made with high quality and healthy ingredients with minimal processing. The results are deliciously simple and intensely flavourful.

Laza's Commitment to Quality & Community

The beverages line consists of two distinct flavour profiles, hibiscus tea and lemon, and built upon them with zesty flavours like ginger, turmeric and mint. Laza Ice Pops are created with whole fruit and sweetened with maple syrup or honey. We have carried this commitment of quality over to Arki Frozen Dog Treats, a delicious and healthy treat made from human-grade ingredients for your furry friend.

Laza is proud to be an active member of the Guelph community. Whenever possible we participate in a variety of local festivals, and support local fundraising initiatives such as the following:

Kids Ability

Learning Disability Association of Guelph

Guelph Food Bank

Guelph Black Heritage Society

Children’s Foundation
