Honest Dumplings is an Edmonton-based company that produces gourmet Chinese dumplings. Founded by wife and husband team Ray Ma and Chris Lerohl, Honest Dumplings started with Ray's passion for food and creativity and Chris's passion for innovation and entrepreneurship. Both of them are disruptors of the status quo, which led them to build and grow an artisanal food company that aims to reinvent grocery. They do this through continually developing innovative recipes, using local and natural ingredients, and ensuring that transparency and sustainability are core to decision making.
At Honest Dumplings, they believe that the most important part of their story isn't how passionate they are about bringing amazing food products to market, rather it is the moment when they decided to follow their hearts. Their core value is to inspire their customers and their team to find their own passion and to create space for others to follow their hearts. They want their customers and team to love Honest Dumplings not only because their taste buds want to sing when they bite into their dumplings, but also because their hearts are inspired. Ray and Chris aspire to have their customers and team taste not only quality in their food but the inspiration in what they do. Honest Dumplings - inspiration in every bite.
We are food companies. Not companies who make food. Passionate food producers deserve to be connected with people who want their products. By joining forces local food companies can make it easier for customers to get the food they want, when and where they want it. That's why Uproot Food Collective exists.
