Dennis Scanland co-founded SunnyCider alongside “instrumental” friends Tim and Darlene Kitchen, inspired to take action against food waste. SunnyCider “rescues” apples, pears, and berries across Alberta and BC from going into the compost bin to instead be turned into house-made hard cider.

Education is extremely important to the SunnyCider team. As the only cider house in Western Canada, SunnyCider prides itself on spreading awareness on the history and production of cider, hosting regular tasting events, tours, and showcasing a rotating cast of other craft ciders. Scanland is also in the process of starting a Cider Association to unite and collaborate with fellow Albertan cider-makers.
