A branded wholesaler, Quattrocchi maintains its competitive edge by supplying the food service industry with wholesale access to brand names like Kraft, McCain, and Heinz, to name a few. This puts them a step above their competition, and ensures their products conform to both their – and their customer’s – high standards. We have made the commitment to remain a Branded house, and have partnered with the following list of companies under our product link..
We follow the Food and Safety guidelines under the Canada Gap certification. Quattrocchi’s competitive edge in the food service industry stems from its commitment to providing quality products, excellent customer service and a competitive price structure. As a food distributor whose products must travel thousands of kilometres every day, Quattrocchi is a business that never sleeps, and a drive by the Smiths Falls warehouse at any time of the day or night will reveal a warehouse bustling with activity.
Founded in 1922 by patriarch, Joe Quattrocchi, the family’s foray into the grocery business came with the opening of a grocery store in downtown Perth. The business prospered in Perth, and in 1950 a warehouse was built in Smiths Falls to take advantage of the two rail lines running through town, and the opportunity to expand the reach for this burgeoning company. In the 1970s, when volatility within the railroad made continuing with rail transportation less desirable, Quattrocchi stayed put in Smiths Falls, close to major trucking transportation routes and large urban centres. During this period of time, J.Quattrocchi & Co. Ltd., has grown to employ close to 50 employees in the Smiths Falls, Ontario location. And through ongoing changes in the Foodservice industry, we have kept pace within the marketplace by adjusting to market trends on an ongoing basis. After a fire in 2002, we rebuilt and added on additional space and have put many upgrades in place for upcoming growth.
While starting out in a small store in Perth, Ontario and growing to service clients’ base in the surrounding region, the Quattrocchi family through three generations has maintained a commitment of providing our valued customer, while maintaining a competitive price.
Today, the distributor runs six days a week (No Sunday) shipping grocery products, fresh fruits and vegetables, and a complete line of food service products throughout Eastern Ontario. We offer delivery service, right to the door/dock, catering to our customer's needs and wants. We have over 15 trucks delivering our products to customers within a 100 km radius of our Smiths Falls warehouse.
