In 2020, Richard went looking for a probiotic to meet his post-workout needs. When he couldn’t find one he decided he to make one himself. After months of kitchen prototyping Richard had created the first bottle of Liven Protein Kefir. Donald joined the team to help build a brand and bring Liven to the market.
Last January, Liven converted a piece of the Antigonish Farmers’ Market kitchen into a specialty fermentation facility. Since then, they have been successfully selling in the market on Saturdays. “The Antigonish Farmers’ Market has been an essential foundation on which Liven has been able to grow,” they say.
Liven is Canada’s first craft Protein Kefir. We combined thirty grams of quality whey protein with powerful probiotics to heal the body and mind.
Liven is a post-workout probiotic that holistically supports muscle recovery and helps you achieve and maintain a healthy gut microbiome. “We are proud to be able to improve people’s health while giving back to the local Nova Scotian economy. Someday soon we hope to be on local grocery store shelves so everyone can liven up!”
