ptifoods was founded as Sharma Grocery by Mr. & Mrs. R.S. Sharma in 1975. The company had humble beginnings as a niche import house and retailer, catering to the grocery needs of a small population of South Asian Canadians in downtown Toronto. As the South Asian community grew, Sharma Grocery transitioned away from retail and focused exclusively on its wholesale business, as ptifoods. With a focus on wholesale, we broadened our scope by continually adding new products and reinventing our brands, and as a result, we have enjoyed tremendous growth every year since our inception.
