A Delicious History
The Original Cakerie was established in 1979 by our founders, Doug McFetridge and Kent Norris, as a small bakery producing high quality desserts for local restaurants in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
As business grew, in 1989 the Original Cakerie needed bigger facilities to support increased production demand and opened a new plant in Delta, BC. The continued growth within this facility allowed The Original Cakerie to expand into the retail industry in the early 90s and in 2009, The Original Cakerie underwent a groundbreaking expansion and opened a new state of the art plant in London, Ontario, giving the business significant capacity to grow.
In 2015, Gryphon Investors purchased The Original Cakerie from the founders.
Both of The Original Cakerie’s facilities were honored in March 2013, when they achieved a grade “A” from the British Retailer Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety. And in the summer of 2012, the Ontario facility added high speed cutting and packaging equipment, a high-tech new operational capability that allows The Original Cakerie to serve its customers in a whole new way.
As the Original Cakerie continues its rich history of growth, expansion and innovation, we look forward to serving our present and future customers, for years to come.
