Purity Factories Limited is a food processing company based in St. John's, Newfoundland.

Founded in 1924 by C. C. Pratt, A. E. Hickman, and W. R. Goobie, Purity is known for its cream crackers, Peppermint Nobs, Candy Kisses, and flavoured syrups. The company also makes several varieties of hard bread (hardtack), a staple of the Newfoundland diet formerly used by fishermen as a bread substitute and as an ingredient in fish and brewis.[1]
