LCG Foods Services
We currently help over 400 independent retailers across Canada stand out from their competition with our unique product lines. We carry the products your customers are looking for, before they even know they’re looking for them. We want to be your strategic partner to help you grow your business, and to help you differentiate from regular supermarkets growing their natural food sections. Our mission is to continuously source, formulate, and/or manufacture products which are novel, yet easily understood. We’re seeking long term partnerships with our clients. Our goal is to help you in the following ways:
We help you differentiate on product. We maintain a tightly focused catalog of natural food products that bring customers back to your store. We are always working with brand owners to introduce even more hot, new brands to the market.
There are two ways we could choose to set prices: 1: Have a high everyday price with case stack deals to bring the price down onlyfor large stores (e.g. $5 regular price, $4 on orders of 10+ cases). 2: Set prices that are fair for all stores (e.g. $4 regular price).
We also cut out unnecessary overhead by never printing and mailing out large paper catalogs and limiting in-store visits. We feel it is the right thing to do to for the environment and to provide the best value to our customers . If you own a retail store in Saskatoon, why should you pay extra to cover a sales rep’s travel expenses to visit a store in Ottawa? Or, if you own a retail store in Ottawa, why should you pay extra to cover our costs of shipping a heavy catalog out to Saskatoon?
Our product catalog allows you to view current pricing, ingredients, nutrition facts tables, and a photo of the product. You can also submit your orders online at any time of the day. Ordering can also be done by phone, email, and fax.

For Brand Owners
Retail Distribution Service
With our distribution service, we inventory your products in our warehouses, add them to our catalog, integrate your brand’s message into our website and send out marketing materials to our customer base. Retailers can then order your product from us, whether they order online, by fax, phone, or email.
We will work with you to develop marketing materials as well as incorporate your products into our marketing. For example, our sales staff can actively promote your product through cold calling, routine calls to existing clients, and product demonstrations. We also exhibit at trade shows annually and you can acquire space at these booths at a fraction of the cost of a full booth.
