Our History

JD Sweid - Our HistoryOriginally Founded in 1917 by Jacob David Sweid, the company grew from a small family corner store to a meat market serving the needs of the community.

JD Sweid Ltd operated for many years as a meat market before evolving over time to a manufacturer of further processed beef products operating a facility in Burnaby.

In 1987 JD Sweid Ltd was acquired by the Shato Holdings group. In 1992 JD Sweid Ltd acquired Protein Foods and incorporated poultry into their product line under the name of Hampton House.

In 2006 JD Sweid Ltd acquired Elmira Poultry in Waterloo Ontario, creating a truly national manufacturing network to meet the ever changing needs of our customers. This acquisition resulted in our name changing to JD SWEID FOODS and created one of Canada’s largest suppliers of poultry and beef products to the food service and retail industries.

In May of 2013 JD SWEID FOODS was acquired by Hallmark Poultry creating a stronger organization that is better positioned to meet the ever changing needs of our customers in the dynamic Canadian marketplace.

JD SWEID FOODS now operates two facilities in Langley, and Waterloo and employs approximately 600 people who are working to provide world class customers with high quality products.

Today JD SWEID FOODS continues to be committed to producing innovative, high quality products for our customers and their consumers.
