Many years ago, when Melissa Plati’s grandfather Ted (Tibor) Kassay was living out of a van and running a booth at a flea market in Carolina, he discovered his love and passion for aloe vera.
After using aloe for his body pain and seeing the amazing results, Ted found an organic aloe farm in Texas which has now been the producer for Melissa’s Aloe for more than 25 years. Ted quickly began selling aloe juices and gels for the flea market, and soon after got the nickname Dr. Aloe.
Living in Carolina at the time of a tornado he noticed an influx of stray dogs in the area and many of them looked malnourished. After countless hours spent researching and experimenting, he created an aloe dog food which he would feed to the stray dogs. Many of these dogs then developed a liking for Ted and within no time they were healthy and happy. After seeing the benefits that aloe had on these animals, Ted knew he had to start his own business.
With a vision in mind he travelled back to visit his family in Niagara Falls with all of his products, calling them ‘Tibor’s Aloe,’ but after a year he realized it needed a new name. Melissa who was only 12 at the time jokingly suggested he call it Melissa’s Aloe and indeed he did, after his only granddaughter. Melissa’s Aloe was born.
As a child Melissa wanted to go to law school to become a lawyer and eventually become a judge but once she finished law school, she found her way back to her grandfather’s business in the aloe industry.
As the years went on the long days and physical labour became difficult for Ted and Melissa found herself slowly taking over. As they focused on expanding into Western Canada, Melissa visited the Okanagan to sell Melissa’s Aloe at a pet show. It was at this moment she fell in love with the Okanagan, eventually calling it her home. Operated out of the Okanagan, Melissa’s Aloe products are available online and in numerous pet stores and pharmacies throughout Canada.
The benefits from aloe are endless and there really is something for everyone.
