We have worked on thousands of new product developments. That history has contributed to a very large pool of skillsets and capabilities which is quiet unique. Our customers are privileged working with Original Foods because we are relentless in our efforts to make new ideas to come to fruition, regardless of the technical challenges in place.

Full Service Co-Packing
We co-pack many brands and a wide range of product categories: syrups, confectionery, bakery ingredients, sauces, broth, beverage and condiments. We segregate production in terms of both food safety and allergen control. This, coupled with the space to build additional rooms, allows us to co-pack products which are not already part of our portfolio. We have the flexibility to support start-ups with very small runs and equally we service some of the largest retailers and restaurants chains in North America.
Acquisitions & Joint Ventures
Not only can we co-pack your brand, but we can also invest in your it, whether as a minority investor or for gradual acquisition. We can also manage your business by carrying your logistics and invoicing your customers.
