Premium Brands is a food holding company investing in:
Food manufacturers with specialty food products, strong brands and leading niche market positions. The Company defines specialty food products as those where the consumer’s purchasing decision is based primarily on factors other than price, such as quality, convenience, product consistency, health and/or lifestyle. Examples of its specialty food products include meat snacks such as pepperoni, beef jerky and kippered beef; snack foods such as fresh and individually wrapped pastries and cookies; concession products such as popcorn, hot and frozen beverage supplies and ice cream accessories; fresh and prepackaged sandwiches; delicatessen items such as European-style deli meats; cheeses, fresh salads, wraps and specialty crackers; and premium smoked sausages. The Company’s focus on this segment of the food industry is based on the ability of these companies, in general terms, to earn higher and more consistent selling margins and to avoid competing with major food manufacturers that produce and distribute mainstream food products on a larger scale;
Differentiated food distribution businesses. The Company’s focus on this segment of the food industry is based on the ability of these companies, in general terms, to generate higher margins by offering customers unique service and product solutions that differentiate them from distributors who are primarily focused on logistics. Furthermore, they enable the Company to generate and sustain additional margin by providing its specialty food manufacturing businesses with proprietary access to a diversified customer base. The Company’s current distribution businesses service approximately 25,000 customers, including convenience stores, gas bars, restaurants, delicatessens, small specialty grocery chains, hotels and institutions, across primarily western Canada.
Current members of the Board of Directors for Premium Brands Holdings Corp are: Johnny Ciampi, Bruce Hodge, Hugh McKinnon, George Paleologou, and John Zaplatynsky.
