What services can Avid Gourmet provide?

Our Focus:

Our Focus is to source Canadian specialty foods to distribute to our retail partners.


Avid Gourmet is based out of Kitchener Ontario, and specializes in direct shipment throughout most parts of Ontario. Our refrigerated warehousing & fleet of trucks enable us to supply various types of products, ensuring safety and integrity throughout the distribution channels we service.

Sub Distribution:

In order to better service some parts of Ontario, we have partnered with sub distributors located in the territory. We believe these local distribution relationships will benefit suppliers & retailers alike in providing service in areas that may otherwise be difficult to achieve.


The opportunity for all retailers throughout Canada to access Avid Gourmet’s products is now available! We offer retailers the option of safely placing orders on line with shipment via third party anywhere in Canada.

Supplier Shipping:

Avid Gourmet will facilitate your direct on line shipments for your products. We understand many manufacturers feel their efforts are best spent focusing on product development & operations. We pick / pack & ship, part & full cases allowing all parties to concentrate on what they do best.

Marketing Support:

Never before has it been so critical for retailers and suppliers to utilize social media in their marketing plans. Avid Gourmet recognizes these strategies and has invested in making sure our  network is in real time with all supporting marketing efforts.
