Canadian Flavors wants to bring you closer to the extraordinary diversity of Canadian food culture. Gourmet, food lover or fast food junkie – Canada has something to offer for every taste!


Canada’s gastronomy has always been an extraordinary combination of traditional local (First Nations and Inuit) as well as Anglo- and Francophone cuisine. Since the 19th century, immigrants from around the world have incorporated countless new recipes and products into Canada’s cuisine. We listened to what our contacts in the food service and retail industry told us are their top sourcing priorities moving into this new decade. Whether it be sourcing on-trend attributes or elevating the story of a producer, we understand what the consumer seeks.  

With that in mind, we have curated Canada Innovates and Ideally Canadian to meet these needs. The companies featured in these directories are already selling in the American marketplace or are poised to do so in the near future.
