Body Fuel Organics is the brainchild of Regina’s Lana Van Dijk – a woman who turned to organic produce as a way to improve her daughter’s health. A passionate advocate for health, wellbeing and fitness, Van Dijk is a firm believer in the connection between what we eat and how we feel. Hence the name: Body Fuel Organics.
In her younger years, Lana’s now 22-year-old daughter seemed to get sick all of the time, was on a number of antibiotics, and at the most extreme, was on antibiotics nine times in one year. Desperate for alternatives, Lana met with a naturopath who recommended that Lana try to build up her daughter’s immune system through the use of organic food, as it was clear her daughter’s system couldn’t handle all of the pesticides and toxins in that which was not organic.
At the time, organic produce was hard to come by locally so Lana did what she still does best: found a solution. After some research, Lana discovered an informal local home based collaborative that made bins of organic produce. Lana signed up on the spot – and got 14 of her friends to sign up too! In time, her daughter’s health improved exponentially and it wasn’t long before Lana decided it was time to open up her own business. This new business combined some of the characteristics of the service she had used with new and improved aspects.
Before long, Lana had all the paperwork in place required to put together organic produce bins in her basement where she renovated a room so it would meet health regulations. From this room, equipped with a full sized cooler and a double sink, Lana built up to fifty bins a day with two young children at home and another in kindergarten. She often jokes about how the increased foot traffic in her house led to her carpets getting really worn!
After two years of operating out of her basement, it was clear there was a demand for her service, and she expanded to her first physical location on Ottawa Street in 2006.
Fourteen years later, Body Fuel had grown and allowed Lana to expand her store once more to its current location on McDonald Street. This new location has afforded the business with a significant increase in space for the grocery store, coolers and freezers, bin preparation and client education.
Today, Body Fuel Organics has 5 employees, which includes 1 full-time position and 4 part-time employees. Beyond the city of Regina, the company’s service area stretches to White City, Pilot Butte, Balgonie, and Lumsden areas. As well as Estevan, Weyburn, Pangman, Stoughton and Qu'Appelle.
