How to PIVOT Back in the Pandemic World

Like many companies, we are closely monitoring the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world and more particularly in Ontario. We continue to work closely with all of our customers to keep up-to-date on your needs as the current situation changes rapidly.

We have taken several measures to minimize the risks associated with COVID-19. In particular, we have implemented measures to reduce the travel of our employees and have prohibited business trips, unless absolutely necessary, as well as allowing teleworking to those whose functions allow it. We also encourage our employees to limit personal travel and have imposed a self-isolation period for those who have returned from travel outside of Canada.

Our procurement department is very active with our suppliers in order to ensure an acceptable level of product supply and to ensure they notify us quickly in case of concerns related to maintaining our level of inventory. We wish to reassure you that to-date, we have not seen any delay or problem in the supply of goods due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As you aware we take the outmost care in the service we provide to all our customers. We believe that it is our social duty, and not only in the context of our operations, to continue to serve you well.

Think like a Grocerant

Since the mid-teens, traditional grocery stores in Canada have been blurring the lines between grocery and restaurant foodservice with so-called “grocerants.” These intersections of grocery and eatery have seen a number of food retailers, like Longos, Loblaws and Farm Boy (Sobeys) add in store restaurants and full meals for shoppers who want to do more than pick up their bread and bananas. For Millennials on the go, especially, these hybrids have offered the perfect combination of convenient food shopping and a hospitality experience.

Many consumers are wondering which restaurants in their region are still open and offering take-out and delivery. aims to fill this gap and become consumers’ go-to source of information. Through this exciting project, all Canadian foodservice establishments who offer take-out and delivery will be listed at no cost.
