Burnac Produce Limited has roots in the produce industry that go back over 70 years—having grown from the one-man produce trucking operation that started in the 1930s, which eventually became Provincial Fruit Company, to the multi-million dollar fresh produce operation it is today.
Over the years, a number of operations have been acquired and over time have been organized as two corporate divisions – Provincial Fruit Co. Limited and Rite-Pak Produce Co. Limited which currently occupy 25% of the Ontario Food Terminal.
With the growth and diversity of these operations, the need for an integrated, advanced refrigerated distribution centre was recognized and in 2006 this distribution centre, which is technologically “state-of-the-art” and has the ability to preserve any type of produce in the most ideal conditions, was completed, and Burnac Produce Limited was established.
In 2011, Pro Pak Packaging Limited, a division of Burnac Produce, outgrew its space in the main Burnac distribution centre and expanded to a 60,000 square-foot building just a few miles away. This modern facility is outfitted with the latest in packaging equipment and all of the logistics for Burnac are handled at this location.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of Burnac Corporation, a Burnett family-owned company operating throughout Canada and the United States of America, Burnac Produce Limited is the storage and logistics operator for Provincial Fruit Co. Limited, Rite-Pak Produce Co. Limited, as well as others.
Rich in its history and diversity, Burnac remains true to its family values.
