In the 1980s, Amalgamated Dairies Limited recognized the need to expand beyond manufacturing superior quality Dairy products. With the goal of expanding access to ADL products from retail into restaurants and other eating establishments, ADL Foods, a full line food service distributor, was created.

Today, over 1,000 customers from Prince Edward Island’s restaurant and food service industry segments count on ADL Foods as their full-line food service distributor.

Our experienced team delivers outstanding service to customers who turn to us for ADL Dairy products, fresh produce and frozen foods, dry goods, paper products, janitorial items, and other non-food items. Independent and chain restaurants, hotels and motels, banquet facilities, healthcare institutions, and dairy bars come to ADL Foods for access to our extensive product base of approximately 4,000 products.

Plus, businesses aren’t the only ones to benefit from our selection, quality, and exceptional prices. Everyday Islanders take advantage of ADL Foods too. Shoppers from the general public visit the ADL Foods Retail Store to buy everything from wholesale milk and frozen meats, to baking supplies and aluminum foil.

Our newly rebuilt facility includes a professional kitchen where Island-based chefs and restaurateurs can get creative. Industry clients and partners can book our ADL Foods Test Kitchen to create new menu items, try out new ideas for existing foods, or put on product education sessions.

We help community businesses in other ways too. Even before the “buy local” trend, ADL Foods prided itself on working with local food processors, growers and manufacturers. That continues to be essential to how we do business today.

Another sign of our community focus is that our team takes part in not-for-profit activities across PEI, and ADL Foods supports fundraisers across the region.

ADL Foods is also a sought-after workplace providing year-round, full-time and long-term employment to more than 30 Islanders. While our parent company, Amalgamated Dairies Limited employs over 250 Islanders.

Bottom line: ADL Foods hires, serves and supports Islanders, and Island-based businesses.
