Unbun Foods is a Toronto based, certified keto, paleo, grain-free & gluten-free food company. Founded in late 2017, the company has grown to over 1,500 locations, including Loblaws, Metro, Whole Foods, The Burger’s Priest, Erewhon and more.

The mission is simple: to give people that follow low-carb, paleo gluten-free, grain-free and plant based diets the option to still enjoy their favourite restaurants, chains, fast food and meals at home without compromising taste or quality of dining experience. First and foremost, our products taste amazing, they just happen to be keto, paleo, grain-free and gluten-free. We love what we do and hope you do too!

In 2018, our founder Gus Klemos was wanting to be able to enjoy his favourite burgers and sandwiches, but without the guilt, gluten, and empty carbs associated with buns made from processed white flour. Alternatively, the gluten-free options were essentially the equivalent of sugar, preservatives, and chemical binders/gums. Even worse were the messy, unsatisfying "lettuce buns" which were typically the only available low-carb options. 


We started off in a

One Bedroom Condo

Needless to say, after identifying this problem in the market, Gus knew he had to come up with a solution.

"The growing percentage of keto, paleo & gluten-free diners now have a way to enjoy their favourite foods without cheating, breaking their diets or exposing themselves to ingredients they're intolerant to."
