ABOUT US 


Viking Foods started out as Viking Meat & Sausage Co. on October 21, 1955.  Three Finnish immigrants joined together to recreate the taste of meat products for themselves and the thousands of other Finnish immigrants who were coming to Canada to find a new home.   


The early days in downtown Toronto


The original store in Leaside


Eventually my father Olavi became the sole owner and moved the business from downtown to the more uptown Leaside area where a decision was made to start importing food products from Finland to expand the business.  The Leaside location included a retail store where the meat and imported products were sold while the wholesale side grew with increasing sales to Northern Ontario and select locations across Canada.



A couple of moves later find us at our current warehouse in Central Toronto where we no longer manufacture meat products but concentrate instead on importing the finest Scandinavian foods available.
