Great Value products: Grown in Canada
Much of the fresh produce and ingredients that go into our private label food brand, the Great Value line, are either grown, processed or produced right here in Canada. It’s a recipe for success that enables us to support national food producers and ensure a steady supply of high quality merchandise to our stores at the same time.
We depend on strong relationships with Canadian food growers and producers to prepare many of the signature products in our Great Value line, which includes everything from frozen foods, packaged and canned goods to beverages.
Canadian suppliers deliver the goods
Quality local food suppliers make all the difference. For example, the key supplier for our Great Value pasta products is the company, Italpasta – a homegrown success story with roots in Italy. Every product that Italpasta makes for us is grown, manufactured and sold – all here in Canada. They use exclusively 100 per cent Canadian amber durum wheat to make products like our Great Value spaghetti and macaroni at their “pastificio” or pasta manufacturing plant in Brampton, Ontario.
Pasta is just one staple from our network of Canadian food suppliers. We enjoy robust relationships with a wide range of food producers including:
- Weils Food Processing makes fifteen products for Great Value including canned tomatoes, potatoes and pasta sauces.
- Beemaid Honey Limited supplies us with five domestic honey products – none of which are blended with imported honey like some of our competitors.
- Bonduelle North America supplies 23 products in our Great Value line of canned and frozen vegetables.
