Company History

B.J.S. Meats (previously known under another name) was founded in 1984 by Ben Parisi and his partner Paolo shortly after Bens arrival to Canada from Italy. After many years of work together, Paolo retired and Ben renamed the company to include the initials of his sons (Ben, Joe, Simon and Stefano).

Built on core principals of hard work, integrity, respect and a commitment to constant improvement B.J.S. continues to produce, import and distribute fine quality meats and game products to all sectors of the food and beverage industry in the GTA.

Our Pillars


Our mission is to help our customers succeed. Regardless of whether you are looking for the latest food trend item or the everyday staple on a menu, we make it our top priority to provide our customers with as many options as possible, the most consistent product and impeccable service.


We believe that consistency is the key to success in the food industry.

We believe in the “domino effect” of success. If we focus on our customer’s success, we will in turn be successful.

Honesty is still the best policy.
