Rosehive Superfoods Box is a company dedicated to teaching people about the beneficial uses of different superfoods and health food items. Superfoods are rich in nutrients and very beneficial for the health and wellbeing of people everywhere.


The business was started in November 2016 by Jillian Berswick who was inspired by a blue algae smoothie, and really wanted to make it but didn’t want to spend the ridiculous price that it would cost.

She wanted to give people the chance to learn and create through trying new and healthy products that make you feel good without the high price attached to it.

Their slogan, “Pollinate your soul” comes from the inspiration of worker bees.

Just like how they spend their lives pollinating flowers allowing them to grow, she wants to reach out to other people with new ways to pollinate themselves; to allow growth and to help people feel good with good foods.

Rosehive is a monthly subscription box that contains a recipe sheet, good and unique foods, herbs, coffees/teas, supplement powders, etc.

The Superfood box has a unique value proposition. Jillian mentions that the Rosehive Box is not just a cheap “healthy snack” box, it’s more than that. It’s not just local but also diverse brands from across the globe.

The nature of the box is to help others create, discover, feel good and learn. This box is teach people preventative medicines. Superfoods help you treat yourself before you get sick with remedies that have been on our planet for years. 

Superfoods come from centuries of knowledge that can help benefit us all. Jillian wants to bring old traditions into western culture with the aid of her superfoods box.

“Being an entrepreneur is like being on a roller coaster. You need to go down before you can reach the top”. She believes it’s the failure that drivers her, that you need to fail in order to succeed.  

Jillian was faced with many problems along the way of her entrepreneurial roller coaster. One of the biggest difficulties was to figure out where to sell her product; Canada or the States?Also she didn’t know if small brands or companies would believe in her and her box.

The main struggle for her to get herself out there, was to gain the trust of many companies to put their product in her box, and that she wasn’t just a regular “health food box”.


For the future, she hopes to have an existing customer base and to collaborate with as many companies as possible. She would love to lower costs all around allowing Canadians to benefit more.  

Pollinate your soul!
