Grand River Foods

Our Promise is: "To be the trusted source of food experiences that inspire our customers and theirs, every day." It’s a Promise that we make on every shift, on every delivery, in every department, by everyone at Grand River Foods.

With a 350 person strong team located in Cambridge, On, Grand River Foods has been steadily growing to meet their customers’ needs. Using quality ingredients, customized recipes, and innovative production techniques, we create a wide range of products to meet the diverse needs of our consumers. We grill, steam and roast over 100 different chicken, beef, pork and vegetable products, each with its own distinct culinary experience.

Designated as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for five years in a row, we pride ourselves on our commitment to continuous improvement and innovation. Grand River Foods is also proud to have spearheaded, with the Ontario Government, Canada’s first Institute of Food Processing Technology located in Cambridge Ontario. As a company, we strive to be better than good, and this includes not only commitment to the future education of our community, but to the welfare of our community as a whole. We recognize the importance of giving back, through our constant support of social and civic groups in our community like United Way and local food banks.

Since food processing is one of the largest manufacturing sectors in Ontario, there is always a need for skilled workers. A wide variety of careers can be found in this industry ranging from Process Specialists, who deal with improving line efficiency, to Quality Assurance Technicians who ensure customers get the best final product. Grand River Foods is a place where teamwork is necessary, ideas are welcome, and the work is meaningful. Our culture is built on the fundamental belief that skilled, passionate people make good food better.
