Ortner Brand Soap Company
Ortner Brand was started originally in British Columbia about three years ago. Jenn started the business with her husband who really enjoys making soaps, they then started making more products as they received lots of positive feedback. When they moved back to NS they started running the company full time and now go to a variety of markets in the area. Jenn specializes in the soaps and lotions.
She believes it is important to shop local because it it good for so many things, good for the environment and the local economy and it gives people an opportunity to do something different with their life. Jenn loves the local business here in the valley as opposed to that back in BC, she finds that she is able to run a steady business and do something that she loves with the support of the community.
Fun Fact: Before Jenn was running her soap business, she worked in research administration with a science background.
