A Note From Our President

When I think what it has taken in today’s world for a business to make it 25 years, I’m like WOW!  It seems like just yesterday that I was delivering my first case of beverage from the trunk of my car. Now Unique Foods has become one of the major players in quality beverages brands. Over the years we have worked hard to build a solid reputation based on several factors… service, loyalty, and customer experience. We have had the pleasure of representing many amazing brands over the years while creating and cultivating incredible partnerships.
I would like to send out a special thank you to all our partners that supported Unique Foods over the past years especially this past one. It allowed us to pivot and get even stronger. We are forever grateful for your faith and loyalty during this time.
We are looking forward to continued success into 2021 and are excited for the future!
Jon Silver
President Unique Foods Canada

Testimonials

Jon and Team Unique,

Congratulations for 25 years in the business! That in and of itself is a great achievement -- especially given the lack of predictability as of late during the pandemic. Most impressive is Unique’s dedication and hard work to providing winning brands to customers and consumers throughout the years. As for us, the Orangina North America brand owners, we couldn’t be more pleased with the results as Unique continues to grow the brand throughout Canada. We look forward to developing more brands in the years to come.

À votre santé!
