OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our founder’s philosophy is the reason why our products are loved and trusted by our consumers.

If a product wasn’t good for his own family, it wasn’t good for his customers.

OUR HISTORY

Ontario Impex of Canada was incorporated and introduced ethnic-food brands like MDH masalas, Pachranga and, for the first time ever, Haldiram’s, in the Canadian market. Our successful restaurant business and the growing Indian community in Canada, pointed to the need for these products in the country. Brands in India did not have export departments at the time; This led to the incorporation of Ontario Impex of India, our sister concern, which sourced goods locally from the Indian market

Popularized by our restaurants, the demand for our samosas and sweets began to flow in from different cities in Canada. We set up a fledgling kitchen, dedicated to sweets and samosas at the back of Brar’s restaurant at 199, Advance Boulevard. Our founder wanted it to be close to the customers so he could gauge their reactions as he worked on perfecting his recipes.


Growing demand for our sweets led to the creation of a new kitchen at 171, Advance Boulevard, dedicated to the production of sweets.

Blooming demand meant we needed an even larger facility. Our sweets production moved to 19, Victoria Crescent.

We started the production of one of our most popular desserts, Rasmalai, which quickly became and continues to be one of our most popular retail products.

Already popular in our restaurants, we started the production of Paneer at our facility, adding to our growing range of products

We moved our office to 5820, Kennedy Road, which became our primary facility for the production of Samosas and also housed a bakery.

To meet the demand from retailers like Loblaws, we upgraded our facility and increased the production of samosas to over 20,000 a day.

This year, we will be amalgamating our operation at 190, Statesman Drive, for better control and quality management.
