We are proud of our roots, which we can trace back over 100 years, but our vision and purpose are decidedly forward looking. As we pursue our vision to become the most sustainable protein company on earth, we work to reconnect families with the goodness of food. We are helping to transform the world’s food system so that it can survive, and thrive, for generations to come.
Maple Leaf Foods shares DNA with many of Canada’s historic food companies – from the William Davies Company to Canada Packers. In 1961, Maple Leaf Mills was created through the amalgamation of Maple Leaf Milling Company, Toronto Elevators and Purity Flour Mills Limited – which traced its history to 1836 and the founding of Grantham Mills. Three decades later, Maple Leaf Mills came together with Canada Packers to create Maple Leaf Foods, Canada’s largest food processor. McCain Capital and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board acquired controlling interest in the new company in 1995. Throughout Maple Leaf’s long history, we have adapted to better feed the evolving palette of Canada – and the world. We continue to Raise the Good in Food. It’s who we are, as a company and as individuals.
