Our story began in 1929 as a small, family-run abattoir named Capital Packers. The facility was built in Edmonton, Alberta, on the very land it sits on to this day. At the time, we were just one of many in a booming meat industry in Edmonton.
Our creation and intended purpose was to provide local, fresh, high quality meats to the family-run grocery store: Western Groceries & Meat Market. This store used to operate in what is now the heart of Edmonton’s downtown, 96 Street and 104 Avenue, starting in 1912.
Throughout the years, our facility has undergone multiple expansions, and as a result, we outgrew our grocery store counterpart. With these expansions, we made room for technologies that allow us to provide safer and higher quality meat products for our customers.
By providing the highest level of quality and care to all that we produce, we’ve been able to supply families across Western Canada with some of the finest smoked, cured, and fresh meats on the market.
We currently have 4 brands: Capital, Rustic Ridge, Mariano’s, and All Halal.
Our company is still family owned and operated to this day, combining the expertise of our 3rd and 4th generations of family. We are proud to employ over 100 skilled workers that share our values of integrity, quality, fairness, and pride in all that we do.
Without our hardworking staff, we would not be where we are today.
Mitigating risks to food safety is our highest priority, and the health and safety of Canadians is the driving force behind the design and development of the food safety programs we follow.
