Neal Brothers Foods Inc.
Neal Brothers Foods was launched in the spring of 1988 by brothers Chris and Peter Neal. Their first product was croutons made and packaged by hand in their mom's kitchen in Aurora, Ontario. Production grew out of the home kitchen quickly and moved into a local bakery. Chris and Peter were literally working around the clock and 20 hours days were becoming the norm because the product was so labour intensive. Eventually the brothers sat down and made a hard decision; shut down the manufacturing, find a bigger company to produce the croutons and focus on marketing and distribution.
This decision paved the way for more products under a new name, Neal Brothers. Neal Brothers expanded their product offering into Tortilla chips, Salsa, Potato Chips, etc. Neal Brothers had always insisted on healthier foods and avoided artificial flavours and colours etc. and for years had tried to find organic ingredients for their Neal Brothers items. In the early 1990's the only item they could source was an Organic Blue Corn Tortilla. This became a very popular item and the brothers wanted to add to the organic lineup but sourcing ingredients was very difficult at the time. Fortunately Organics have become so popular and widely available that Neal Brothers has been able to grow their organic offering to include such items as; Popcorn, Pretzels, Tortillas and Salsas!
