Our History

Centennial was originally founded in 1967 by Harry Ogolnik of Montreal-based Dominion Provisioners, for his freezer beef program. It was then acquired by the Kovitz and Kalef families in 1972, who expanded it into a branch network and also into slaughter and cattle feeding, under the company name Centennial. > Read more

In the 1990's, Centennial restructured into two business divisions: foodservice and manufacturing. It was at that time that Centennial began to really make a name for itself as a leader in private label burger patty manufacturing. Regarded across North American for its innovation, Centennial grew to be the premier protein focused foodservice distribution company in Western Canada.

In 2000, we took on a new partner, the Saskatchewan Government, and, built a state of the art patty plant in Saskatoon. As the foodservice side of the company continued to grow at a fast pace, in 2005, we restructured the two divisions into Centennial Foodservice and New Food Classics, then sold New Food Classics to EdgeStone Capital in 2006.

Centennial Foodservice was then acquired by Premium Brands Holdings Ltd in 2007. As part of Premium Brand's highly profitable, Canadian-based, publicly traded family of companies, Centennial was able to further expand its footprint, and acquired Vancouver Island's B&C Foods in 2008.

Centennial Foodservice has continued to grow and thrive as the leading foodservice and distribution company in Western Canada. In 2013, we further expanded our capabilities with the acquisition of Vancouver's Harbour Marine wild albacore tuna line and the founding of Centennial's C2C Premium Seafood company, complete with its own specialized processing facility.

We now operate eight branches complete with two new processing facilities and on-site numerous butcher shops at each branch. We work with numerous affiliate companies that also enhance our capabilities to distribute across all of Western Canada and to select customers in the U.S.A. and Asia.

With more than 17, 500 products including more than 3000 custom processed items, we serve more than 6000 customers from Sooke to Saskatoon and everywhere in between.
