A collaboration between Youth Opportunities Unlimited and Western Heads East
Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) is a non-profit organization helping youth in London and Middlesex county to reach their full potential
Western Heads East is a non-profit organization promoting health and sustainable development through probiotic foods in East Africa and London Ontario
Mistyglen values are to own and operate not just a dairy farm but being good stewards of the land alongside building relationships with local businesses
Our collaboration aims to introduce probiotic yogurt into the London market in an effort to bring similar benefits to London's vulnerable population as those experienced in Tanzanian and Rwandan communities. Since its establishment in July 2002, Western Heads East has touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Canada and abroad. As of 2016, Western Heads East and Youth Opportunities Unlimited have formed a partnership to provide Fiti yogurt to vulnerable Londoners (youth shelters, youth centers, meals on wheels, housing organizations).
As part of its expansion into the local London community, Western Heads East has developed partnerships with Mistyglen Creamery, Fanshawe College, and YOU to produce Fiti sachets in London and to create probiotic yogurt for local distribution.

YOU makes Fiti available to vulnerable populations it serves such as seniors and youth who are served through YOU Made it Café’s daily meals and catering
