We're proud to serve Calgary
Our Calgary division began as a family farm-based gardening operation during the 1930s under the name F.M. Tamagi and Sons, operating as Bridge Brand. Over the next 70 years, this family-owned market gardening business grew steadily, until it was purchased by Gordon Food Service in January 2002. Today, this even-bigger family business delivers quality foodservice products and solutions to customers in southern Alberta and parts of eastern British Columbia.

Food Safety Training
We know that food safety is not only the number one concern for consumers when making food-purchasing choices – it’s also an integral part of your operation's success. That’s why we offer a two-day Food Safety certification course facilitated by Alberta Health Services. This course is recognized throughout Canada to meet or exceed all Municipal, Provincial, or Federal requirements. The two-day course focuses on subjects including: Potentially Hazardous Foods, Personal Hygiene, Cleaning and Sanitizing, Time/Temperature Abuse, HACCP, Food Allergies, and the role of your Health Inspector.
Customer Business Reviews
Your success requires a strategic perspective, but that can be hard to find when day-to-day operations require constant attention to details. The Business Review gives you an opportunity to partner with our experienced professionals to fully evaluate your operation. Together, we will examine key operational measures, from revenues and costs to product deliveries and equipment needs. We’ll also carefully consider new ideas and plans to grow your business. We provide business analysis tools, detailed tracking information, and key trend information for your market and industry, all to help strengthen your long-term business prospects.
Category Leaders and Specialists
Our category experts are another value-added service that we can offer your business. They will help you with your culinary challenges, whether it be preparation techniques, cooking tips, plate presentation, or even product education. They bring to you expert knowledge in different fields—protein, dairy, produce, chemical, beverages, disposable, grocery, frozen, kitchen equipment, and smallwares—as well as the determination to really listen to you and help you find a solution that works for your business.
