Our Craft

Flavours to Savour

Crafted with Care

We believe that meats crafted with care taste better. That's why we're dedicated to traditional techniques. We smoke our meats over natural hardwoods and patiently dry age them to perfection for a rich aroma and mouthwatering taste.

Proud of our Past, Passionate about our Future

Our founding values- pride, passion, integrity, community- are the same values that guide us today. By crafting our specialty foods in ways that are responsible and sustainable, we stay true to that legacy and honour future generations.

Our History

It all started in 1957, when a young master butcher, Wilhelm Huber, opened a small shop in Waterloo, Ontario. Using family recipes and traditions 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 known as Piller’s Sausages and Delicatessens Limited. 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.

Territorial Land Acknowledgement

As a part of our responsibility for creating a more responsible and sustainable future, Piller’s is committed to Reconciliation by learning more about how we can improve our relationship with the land in which we do business on. We acknowledge that our operating facilities in Waterloo and Brantford Ontario are situated on the Haldimand tract, which is the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnaabe (Anish-nah-bay) and Haudenosaunee (Hoe-den-no-show-nee) peoples. The Haldimand tract extended for 10 km on both sides of the Grand River, from its source to Lake Erie. The Haldimand treaty was granted to the Six Nations in recognition of their loyalty to the British Crown during the American Revolution. Originally, 950,000 acres was set aside for the Haldimand Tract; today approximately 48,000 acres remain. We recognize the complexity of colonialism and the removal of Indigenous Peoples from their homes and the history that has allowed us to work and live in these communities today.
