About the Company

Conestoga Meat Packers is a leading processor of premium quality, fresh pork. Based in Breslau, ON, we have been supplying the market with wholesome, delicious pork since 1982. Our company is owned and supplied by a co-operative of Southern Ontario farmers who got into the business because they wanted to supply the Canadian market with the same pork their own families were enjoying. To this day we still pride ourselves on farm fresh pork; By families. For families.
