The BUFF Snack Stick Story

Buff Story

In 2014 the first BUFF sticks were packaged. The idea for BUFF came from a new found love of incorporating Bison into our diets and the fact that as a mom I was not happy with the meat snacks available at the grocery store. After playing around with some ideas a decision was made to come up with a way to share the new found passion for bison and saw the need for healthier snack options, specifically protein rich ones that don't have all the "muck" in them. All of that was wrapped all of that up into a product we love, meat sticks. Picking only the most natural ingredients and aligning with an expert smoked meat creator was the  priority. What came of it was an amazingly delicious, all-natural, and 100% Canadian gourmet snack. From the humble beginnings of taste tasting and doodling logos, BUFF has grown to a large network of retail vendors across Canada, and a successful online store.

We chose all of our ingredients very carefully, with ours and your health in mind, starting with the number 1 - Bison! We also chose not to put in all of the "muck" that can help extend shelf life, etc. No one needs it, and your body sure can't use it. By making smaller batches and using a consistent process of fermenting and cold smoking (using bacteria as our friend - check out the blog section for a full explanation) we can ensure that each time you get a smoky, tangy, and satisfying snack. No exceptions. And by using all of our select premium ingredients, BUFF sticks have a nutritional label that's hard to beat.
