Jan K. Overweel Limited is a family-owned business that was established in 1947 as an importer of Dutch fish products and grew to add specialty cocoa, grocery items and cheese products. Today the company imports a wide variety of food products from Italy, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Argentina, North America and more.

In addition to the top quality brands we distribute, we have also developed our own brands, EMMA®, Casa Italia®, Cortina®, Milano and Oak Manor.

We continue to conduct business using the same basic values that were in effect when the company was established over 60 years ago. We strive to bring top quality products and best-in-class service to our customers through a commitment to maintain and grow our global network of partners, producers, distributors and retailers in the food industry. Our offices are located in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.
