Then & Now

Propel Natural Brands – it took 20 years to build the perfect Sales Agency

In 2002, Patrick Higgins and Jon Cohn founded Higgins Cohn Brand. Higgins Cohn enjoyed a celebrated culture and became the leading Natural Products Sales Brokerage in Canada. After being acquired by a larger CPG Brokerage in 2015 and spending five years working to integrate and grow the business there, it was time to go back on our own and build something special – and special it is. Propel Natural Brands is really a combination of the best things about Higgins Cohn, combined with everything we’ve learned along the way. We like to think of it as a start-up, 20 years in the making.

Why Propel?

Simply Said: 
We Put People First.

We believe in partnerships and transparency. Integrity goes a long way and we feed that into every touchpoint of our company’s culture.

With Propel Natural Brands, you’ll enjoy working with a partner who is just as committed to your brand’s success. That’s because we go beyond being a service provider – we are true partners and an extension of your company. We take the responsibility of your business seriously with a lens to win, every time.
