Maple Leaf makes delicious, high-quality products with real, simple, and natural ingredients to nourish Canadian families. We use no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, colours or flavours. We’re for real.
Our Schneiders brand offers the best tasting premium meat products in Canada. Since 1890, Schneiders has been committed to the highest standards of craftsmanship, authentic recipes and irresistible taste. Quality never gets old.
We exist to make a better world by making meat right. That’s why we use meat that is never treated with antibiotics, and our sows are not confined to gestation crates. Because we all deserve meat made right.
