Lindsay Rousseau, and her husband David, are the owners of Ollia Macarons & Tea, a modern bakery with a classic French vibe that’s bringing a “very special oh lá lá” to lower Mount Royal, sans the Champs-Élysées (the famed Parisian avenue). “We want it to be comfortable and accessible,” Lindsay said, “Ollia is for everyone.” Lindsay and David have been collaborating with Leftovers for four years and have been taking part in the Anew upcycling program for the past four months. Ollia created chocolate, cookie sandwiches with repurposed toffee from Sweetsmith Candy Co., through Anew four months ago, and is also using donated pretzels to create white-chocolate dipped pretzels for the Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids charity. Lindsay said that Anew “creates a stronger business overall when your customers are not just invested in your product, but as in you as a company and what values you operate with.”

Leftovers prevents food loss and waste by diverting unsold, fresh food from the landfill and into the hands of those needing it most, or creatively repurposing it with community partners.
