Meet the duo that started Vancouver's grazing box craze


Having a fantastic idea, strong work ethic, ability to take the risk, and the awareness to get to market first are key elements to the success of an entrepreneur.

It can be difficult to have most of these qualities, and Jenessa Hlatky and Stacy Stringer certainly have them all — especially their impeccable timing. They’re the co-founders of local company the Daily Palette. This company that started in 2018 is the very first grazing company to launch in Vancouver, and is responsible for igniting the trend here.

“We started this company because food is where everyone tends to gather at events,” they told Daily Hive. “We wanted to create something that would be the centre point of so many lasting memories and connections,” they added.

It wasn’t just the creation of the product, but the mission that Daily Palette represented.

“Health is also super important to us and we wanted to offer something super fun and interactive while also being healthy-let’s face it, we all know someone with some kind of food restrictions so we wanted to create a platter that welcomes all! Who said healthy can’t also be delicious?” they said.
