Flanagan Foodservice Brand Points Plus







"Green" is more than just our brand colour



Once upon a time, the word "green" simply identified our corporate colour and branding. Today, "green" implies a huge spectrum of ideas, practices and philosophies. We focus on being environmentally responsible and proactive.


In addition to our recycling and lighting programs we have a rainwater collection system for washing trucks and a heat exchanger to make use of excess heat from compressors to heat the freezer and cooler floors.


We also have over 1,300 solar panels that cover 100,000 square feet of space at our Kitchener branch.
