Before moving to Canada, Slovenian-born Mario Goriup owned and operated a butcher shop in Johan-nesburg, South Africa for 25 years. With his European background, Mario's famous prosciuttos, pork sausage, and salamis, quickly ensured his success. After a visit to Canada, Mario recognized a good business opportunity and made the decision to emigrate from South Africa and move to Oakville. In 1977, he opened Florence Meats.
Kurtzie's Gourmet Deli
The Great Canadian Meat Company was founded in 1992, in Whitby, Ontario, Canada as a two-man operation with their flagship product, our Authentic Dry Pepperoni. Since then they have expanded the brand to include Kurtzie’s Gourmet Deli, branching out into specialty sausages and salami products.
Monte Nevado’s history goes back to a family from the highlands of Segovia, an area exposed to the winds of the nearby snow-capped mountain peaks with extraordinary climate conditions for curing ham. Monte Nevado is recognized for their slow and lengthy natural curing processes, which requires the selection of the highest quality hams with higher fat content.
