In 1977, Erie Meats was a 15,000 square-foot
primary processing plant in Toronto’s
meat packing district.

Today, we’re one of Canada’s largest meat processors. We have a
hotdog line the length of two football fields, an R&D kitchen
that’s larger than the entire cooking facility at some
processors, and warehouses across the country.
Our diverse capabilities include deli meats,
sous vide and breaded and battered.

We’re 40-times bigger than we were 40 years ago.

We may be big, but we’re entrepreneurs at heart.
