About Us

ABOUT US

Generations of Ferraro family members have poured labour and love into Ferraro Foods since its founding in 1943.
 
Like any family, the personality of Ferraro’s is a reflection of the quality of the people who work for and grow with the business. Ferraro Foods has survived the ups and downs of the supermarket industry, the increased competition and economic fluctuations because its employees are determined to work together to continually make the stores better able to serve our customers. Many employees choose to remain with Ferraro’s for decades and we think that says a lot about Ferraro Foods, and a lot about the people who are at its heart, our employees.
 
Today, Ferraro Foods is proud to serve our communities of Trail and Rossland with over 150 people employed.
 
Our focus is on healthy families, in healthy communities … much like in our founding days.
