We’re proud to serve Atlantic

You are here

Our Atlantic division began operating in 2000 as M&S Food Service. In 2003, they became part of our family, enabling coast-to-coast delivery of our quality products and solutions. Our Atlantic division, based in Amherst, now services Nova Scotia, including Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island, and New Brunswick.

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 both TrainCan Basics and Advanced food safety training for food handlers. Recognized throughout Canada to meet or exceed all Municipal, Provincial, or Federal requirements, this one-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.

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.
