Yes, it is. Happy Yak engages in environmental, economic and social habits and practices by being conscious of how it uses resources and how it contributes to economic development and social improvement of the quality of life of its workforce and their families. You can count on our continuing commitment even when it comes to our choice of suppliers, recycled shipping materials, multi portion packs, culinary equipment, etc. As well, we offer the work-from-home option to our employees whenever possible as it means no commuting, flexible hours, better quality of life, increased productivity and more.
Our meals are prepared in Saint-Hyacinthe, in the heart of the Agri-Food capital of Canada, i.e. one of the most important agri-food research centres in Quebec. We are very proud to be located in the premises of the FRDC, the Canada Food Research and Development Centre.
Freeze-dried foods have a very long shelf life. Our packaging is opaque to protect the product from light, as the latter may alter the color of certain ingredients (such as carrots). Since moisture is freeze-dried food‘s worst enemy, we have laminated the inside of our packaging, making it virtually waterproof. Kept in a dry place and away from any source of light, the products could have a shelf life of 3 years. They are therefore suitable for use in emergency kits in urban areas.

Happy Yak is a growing species, generous, pleasureful, easily adaptable, and who does things in the simplest way possible. Happy Yak is an alliance between an idea and two people with complementary talents and attributes, wonderful life experiences and who share the same values.
The yak is a large long-haired ruminating mammal primarily found in the highlands of northern Tibet and western Qinghai, and can also be found in Kansu and Mongolia. The yak lives up to more than 6,000 metres (20,000') above sea level. Domesticated yaks are excellent climbers and are used for riding or as pack animals which can carry loads up to 135 kg (300 lbs) on mountainous and rocky terrains. Its wide-spread hoofs are perfect for crossing swamplands and walking in the snow.
Our ambassadors test our products in the most extreme environments. They are first-hand users and supporters, and promote our products to the many whose path they cross. They are part of our continuous improvement process.
