J & W Foods was co-founded in 1995 by Stavros Trougakos & William Fehr. They were inspired by their beloved father, George Trougakos, who owned and operated a butcher & grocery store in the heart of downtown Toronto after immigrating to Canada in the early 60's. As his business grew, he had many restaurant owners asking him to purchase larger quantities of meats and other products for them. Word-of-mouth soon spread and before he knew it he had a significant customer base that he was delivering to. It soon became evident to him that there was a need in the market for a middle person who could provide quality meats and products at wholesale prices to restaurants. Out of this was birthed Advance Food Products Inc., a restaurant distributing supplier. The new business started in Scarborough, Ontario in 1973 and eventually Advance Food Products became one of the largest independently owned & operated restaurant wholesale distributor in Ontario throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. J & W Foods started as a distributor and wholesale/retail butcher shop providing natural premium graded meats. In 2008, they became an Ontario Inspected Meat Plant. As the business grew and evolved, their passion and love for high quality meats and foods was reflected more and more in their store. They soon became known as a one-stop-shop for health and nutrition. They have gained a solid reputation for providing high quality Chicken that is air chilled, grain fed, and raised locally in Ontario without the use of hormones and antibiotics, as well as, Beef (with some being raised without the use of hormones and antibiotics), Pork (all raised without the use of hormones and steroids) and Fish & Seafood (a mix of wild and farmed raised), high quality frozen fruits and vegetables, healthy & clean dressings and sauces, supplements & vitamins and sports nutrition products. Recently they have created a new in-house meal-prep service. Meal Butler was birthed out of a need for high quality cooked & portion controlled meals that can be prepared within minutes. The products are fully cooked, weighed, portioned, and individually flash frozen in BPA free vacuum sealed bags. This service is designed to simplify and help anyone who is interested in creating and/or maintaining a healthy lifestyle. All products are salt and sugar free, with no added oils.
