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.  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.

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 Food & Beverages is pleased to announce the launch of Arki Frozen Dog Treats, a delicious and healthy treat for your best friend.

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.
