The Nova Scotian Cookie Company was founded by Jenna Ross, a proud Nova Scotian and proud entrepreneur. Steeped in a tradition of heartwarming hospitality, the company was created as the perfect accompaniment to the warmth of Nova Scotia’s welcoming culture. It stands as a testament to the company’s ethos: “Give them our best!”

NSCookieCo shortbread cookies are “made and baked” in Nova Scotia and distinctly packaged, designed to be a “go-to” gift that visitors and proud ex-pats can take home as a gift or more often than not – just enjoyed for themselves. Each and every product sold contributes to causes and charities that make Nova Scotia a better place. In collaboration with social enterprise The Flower Cart Group, these uniquely Nova Scotian confections come to life. The Flower Cart Group, dedicated to promoting the participation of adults considered to have an intellectual disability through supported training and employment, handles the making and packing of the cookies.
