True to the Original
When One isn't Enough.....
Some times you eat something so tasty that one is not enough. Our Oatcakes are a gourmet version, the prefect balance. Made with simple whole ingredients.
Most who try them will not be able to just have one, because of that, that is why our packaging has "Please Eat Responsibly"
Meet our Maker... Greg Pringle
Growing up in rural Cape Breton Island, I always had an interest in cooking, and especially baking. It was not uncommon for my parents to come home from running errands and find some sort of dessert or snack that I had made. Growing up my entrepreneurial instincts took over and I would trade my baked goods with schoolmates. Soon, I was selling cookies to my friends and classmates.
Fast forward to adulthood, and I was working as a civil technician for various engineering firms over the course of two decades. But then, as luck would have it, around Christmas time in 2011 I found myself laid off. While weighing my options, a few friends who had tried my Oatcakes from an old family recipe suggested I should make some and try selling them for the holidays.
And that is how the Cape Breton Oatcake Society was born!
The rest, as they say, is history. Today we make thirty different flavours across three product lines. You can find our oatcakes in New Brunswick, PEI, and Nova Scotia.
