In the early 1970’s Bill Granucus opened Island Foods in Port McNeill, bringing food distribution to the North Island. Since then, Island Foods has passed through a small handful of owners, each bringing something new and different to the company.
In 2017, Jim and Susan Cameron purchased Island Foods, bringing their 25+ years of convenience store and gas station experience to Island Foods and the world of food distribution. Their children Courtney and Colin joined them early on, as the family could see the growing needs of the North Island and its remote coastal communities
Since 2017, the Cameron Family has worked hard to bring in more suppliers, more products, and overall aimed to provide their customers and local communities more options for food and freight services.
In 2022, with a desire to grow the service areas and help more regions on northern Vancouver Island succeed, Island Foods expanded with the addition of a new warehouse in Campbell River. The company rebranded to become Island Foods & Freight.
The entire team at Island Foods & Freight is committed to building relationships and providing innovative solutions for all of your customers, suppliers, and community members by building a united company and loyal client base.
