Our purpose-built food manufacturing facility provides co-packing and private label production services to those who have a great recipe they're now ready to bring out of their home kitchen and produce commercially. We can also accommodate those who have market-tested products and now need a co-packer able to produce regular, large product runs.
We specialize in producing acidified canned foods.
- 100 gallon steam kettle (maximum batch size is 400kg)
- We will be adding a 600kg kettle in early 2016 to increase our production capacity
- 2-nozzle automated filling line, equipped with nozzles that can fill sauces and products with larger particulates
- Label machine - round jars only; all other products must be hand labelled
We can fill retail glass jars, food service plastic jugs and pails.
The Plant follows Good Manufacturing Practises; we are working on all the operating procedures to become HACCP certified. Each product produced is checked with our pH equipment to ensure its been correctly acidified;
We operate on a just-in-time system, asking our clients to deliver their raw materials at least three days prior to their scheduled production date; finished products, once labelled need to be picked up within 48 hours after product labelling has been completed.
All staff are required to take the Food Safe 1 course; senior staff must also take the Food Safe 2 Course and have also taken the Small Scale Food Processor Association of British Columbia
If you're thinking about:
- Introducing a brand new food product

We can work with you to create innovative recipes that sell. You need to think about texture, colour, consistency, shelf life, profitability, and, most important, a consumer-pleasing taste. We are passionate about great tasting food.
We know what it takes to bring new products to market, because we've done so with our Jules + Kent, Umi's Kitchen and Caveman BBQ Sauce product lines. We started our Jules + Kent product line from scratch in 2008.
