About Happy Planet

Randal Ius and his friend Gregor Robertson were two Vancouver boys with big dreams. Using a big blender (and lovely organic carrots grown on the Robertson family farm) the boys started concocting juices and smoothies to give city people a taste of the country. They called their business Happy Planet.

Today, through perseverance, a good dose of passion (and a few mistakes on the way), Happy Planet is Canada’s leading all natural food and juice company. We continue to make great smoothies and juices. We make fresh, delicious, all-natural and organic soups too. We've not made all the planet happy yet, but it's a good start.

Drink Spotlight: Innocent Kiwi Wonder Smoothie



You've asked us a lot of questions over the years. Do the raisins in a mince pie count towards my 5-a-day? What colour are pineapples? Should I watch Diagnosis Murder or Watercolour Challenge?* But of all the questions you've asked, the one that you've asked the most is "when will you make a banana free smoothie?". We can't say it was easy (which sounds weird as you'd think it'd be an easy thing to do). It was tough. But you asked us and we did it. Finally. Sorry it's taken so long. Hope you enjoy it.


  • 2 of your 5-a-day in every bottle or 250ml serving
  • contains 5 different types of fruit
  • is a source of vitamin c

About the company

We started innocent in 1999 after selling our smoothies at a music festival. We put up a big sign asking people if they thought we should give up our jobs to make smoothies, and put a bin saying 'Yes' and a bin saying 'No" in front of the stall. Then we got people to vote with their empties. At the end of the weekend, the 'Yes' bin was full, so we resigned from our jobs the next day and got cracking.

Since then we've started making coconut water, juice and kids' stuff, in our quest to make natural, delicious, healthy drinks that help people live well and die old.

About the Company
We'd always thought one day we'd start a business - whenever we had A-level coursework to do, we found ourselves bouncing (mostly silly) business ideas around instead.

Then in 2002 we were both working in the city - you know, working late, burning the candle at both ends, trying to stay healthy...

We were fed up with the fact that all the drinks on the market either contained more chemicals than a plastics factory or gave us the unpleasant feeling that they should be served by Mary Poppins with a spoonful of sugar.

So we decided to make what we needed for ourselves. Rather than just head to the kitchen and pick up a blender we decided to go the long way round, and create an entirely new product. Read More

Introducing The Baby Kiwi

I’ve been a kiwi fruit fan since I met them back in the dark ages (the early 1980s, if you must know, and thank you California Cuisine and chef Jeremiah Tower).

Beautiful, sweet and tart at the same time, artistic and fanciful, they charmed in many a fruit salad or applied to the top of a fresh fruit tart. (They went a little astray when chefs began to pair them with meat, but that’s another story.)

But that was then, and this is now.

Now, my fruit-loving friends, we have an abundance of fruity options. The now-ubiquitous kiwi is often overlooked. We want something newer, flashier, with more bling!

Baby KiwiWe can have both, actually, with the Baby Kiwi, a tot-sized version of the larger fruit. (They are actual size here, on the right. Yes, I held one up to the screen to check!)

Baby kiwis are a cousin of the larger kiwi, and are about the size of a grape, or a grape tomato. (More on this pairing later.) Imported from Chile in early March, from New Zealand in mid-March to April, or domestically from California or Oregon growers in September to mid-October, you’ll find these in the produce section, in a 6-ounce clamshell package for about $3.50.

They’re super sweet, tender, more delicate than a full-size kiwi and without that fuzzy skin the large version sports. You eat the whole berry, skin and all!

What to do with Baby Kiwi

  • Use instead of cherry tomatoes to decorate the top of your salad.
  • Skewer for a cute appetizer or dessert, perhaps with a strawberry, other berries like a blueberry or blackberry, etc.
  • Skewer them for a different sort of Caprese appetizer with grape tomatoes, baby kiwi,  bocconcini (tiny fresh mozzarella balls), and a fresh basil leaf.
  • Cut in half and use them as edible decoration for nearly anything – pancakes, in fruit salad, on a cracker with some goat cheese…let your food imagination soar!
