Daily Apple grew out of Lesley Stoyan's long-standing interest in fitness and health matters. After years of managing employee centres, health concerns required research into new ways of eating – macrobiotic, organic, local – and her passion as a "foodie" pushed her to develop recipes that were both wholesome and delicious. She founded Daily Apple in 2006 to promote "fresh living," with an initial focus on producing artisan foods. Daily Apple's baked goods and savouries were sold at Toronto markets and food emporiums until the end of 2009. Lesley now specializes in education: on-site cooking events, recipe and menu creation, and lifestyle events and workshops. 

Partner Chris Trussell joined Daily Apple in 2007. He brings his experience as a local foods activist from a wide-ranging involvement with Toronto's top food organizations. Chris specializes in supply-chain management, event planning, and fundraising initiatives.
