SURREY, BC – June 6, 2023
JD Sweid Foods, a renowned Canadian value-added processor of poultry and red meat products, proudly reaffirms its tradition of great taste and quality while also showcasing its dedication to supporting the Surrey Food Bank. With a longstanding commitment to giving back to the community, JD Sweid Foods has donated an impressive total of 24,000 pounds of food since 2013 to the Surrey Food Bank, specifically in support of the annual Breakfast with the Bank initiative.
The most recent donation of over 5,000 pounds of chicken arrives at a critical time for the Surrey Food Bank, as food donations are down while the number of clients is increasing. This generous contribution from JD Sweid Foods will make a huge difference in the lives of those who rely on the food bank’s support.
As a member of Food Banks BC and Food Banks Canada, the Surrey Food Bank implements best practices in the proper and safe storage and handling of food. Prior to donation, all JD Sweid products undergo rigorous quality assurance checks to ensure their adherence to these standards. With a shelf life of two years before the “Best Before” date, all JD Sweid products are guaranteed to be food safe.
Founded in 1917, JD Sweid Foods has grown to become one of Canada’s largest privately owned leading value-added processors of poultry and red meat products. With a strong presence in the foodservice, branded and private label retail, and industrial markets across Canada, JD Sweid Foods continues to deliver exceptional products and services that meet the highest industry standards.
Tom Senft, Director of Finance – Corporate at JD Sweid Foods and member of the CPABC, wholeheartedly supports this noble initiative. He emphasizes the importance of corporate social responsibility and applauds JD Sweid Foods’ ongoing efforts to make a positive impact in the community.
JD Sweid Foods remains committed to not only providing delicious and high-quality food products but also fostering a spirit of generosity and compassion.
