About Us

Edesia Fine Foods was incorporated in 1986, and began by selling fresh seafood to local restaurants. Since then it has grown to encompass a full line of fresh, sustainable fish and seafood items, 80 kinds of cheese, more than 1,000 dry goods and a host of locally-produced items, including flour, honey, deli meats, oils, vinegars, mustards and cheeses. We also have a full line of meat proteins provided by our sister company Sheridan Specialties.

We are large enough to have a full line of products at competitive prices but small enough to be nimble and flexible – for example, we will break cases on most products, sell bulk items in lots as small as a pound and deliver to most areas at least twice a week.

Edesia Fine Foods is unique among food suppliers in our flexibility and our refusal to sell any product that is not of the highest quality available. The chefs and restaurant owners that are responsible for stocking restaurant larders tell us these are the most important attributes of a food supplier. We must be on the right track as the number of customers we serve has grown almost solely through customer referrals.

Our flexibility allows us to provide service that no other supplier can.

For example:

  • If we are short of an item, we will call you in advance and offer an alternative product or later delivery option.
  • If you need additional items or have a late order we can often fill the order on a same-day basis.
  • We will source new items with a few days notice.

New customers are often pleasantly surprised by the size of our minimum order, the number of times we deliver (even in the slow times!), the small unit sizes we sell and our ability and willingness to source new products. In fact, our product list has grown to over 1,000 items largely because of customer requests and it will continue to grow as we source new products our customers need.

Our warehouse is located 3 km from the main Kitchener-Waterloo exit from the 401 (at Highway 8). We operate out of a brand new, 9,800 square foot facility with modern freezers, fridges and operations systems, and a brand new fleet of Hino refrigerated delivery trucks. The premises and equipment upgrades all help us to continue to meet our promise of high-quality products and the level of service your restaurant needs to be successful even as we grow and expand.

Edesia Fine Foods is locally-owned and operated. It is a small business with more than 200 regular customers, 80 suppliers and a solid reputation with both.
