we are original


this is our story


Founded in 1947, we have grown into a national food manufacturer producing confectionery, syrups, fondants, fruit fillings, caramels and continuing to broaden into many other segments.

While “Original Foods 1947” is a recognized confectionary brand, as a Company we have become known for our co-packing expertise and we now work in partnership with some of Canada’s leading restaurant chains, food service distributors, grocery and dollar stores, and even other manufacturers.

These partners have had long-term successful business relationships with Original Foods because of many factors.  The nimbleness and customer focus of a dedicated, entrepreneurially run business, combined with the scale, expertise and competitiveness of a national food products company. 
Our modern 216,000 square feet facility houses R&D, product design, warehousing and over twenty-five production lines operated by more than 150 skilled employees. Our qualified team can move fast and efficiently from initial product concept to production and shipping, ensuring to our partners competitive costs while being fast to market with the latest innovation.

Original Foods. A very strategic partner.
