Testimonials


"I am a German living in Canada and I must tell you, your European sandwich meats are the best on the market. I have been trying others in Canada and they are not even coming close to your products when it comes to taste, price and quality. Keep up the good work!"


- Roland

Huber Brothers - Edward, Wilhelm and Heinrich

A Proud Heritage

It all started in 1957, when a young master butcher, Wilhelm Huber, opened a small shop in Waterloo, Ontario. Using family recipes, and traditional meat processing methods passed down through the generations, he crafted great tasting deli meats inspired by his family’s European heritage. Two years later, his brothers Edward and Heinrich joined the company which became Piller’s Sausages and Delicatessens Limited.


From those humble beginnings, Piller’s has become one of North America’s largest producers of European sausages and deli meats, known for quality products such as Black Forest ham, air-dried salamis and meat snacks. To this day, after five generations of master butchers, Piller’s still uses the same natural aging, curing, and natural hardwood smoking process that had customers lining up outside Wilhelm Huber’s butcher shop over sixty years ago.

 

The company was acquired by Premium Brands Holdings Corporation in 2011 and is now known as Piller’s Fine Foods, but descendants of the three Huber brothers still work at Piller’s today, and family values remain at the heart of the business.
