About Our Fruit Market
CanWest Farms is the hard work and passion of the Kallu family, who have been farming since 1979. In the 80s, Sukhbir Kallu harvested many fruits and vegetables, including strawberries, broccoli and sprouts. As his five children grew up, during the 90s, the Kallu family modified its fruit market to specialize solely in cultivating and packaging blueberries. The Kallu kids revelled in learning from their father, and grew up helping on the farm during summer vacations. With the shorter berry season, Sukhbir Kallu delightedly had more time to spend with his children, and was thrilled to teach them the family business.
Today, our fruit market successfully acquires the business of top local and international brokers, food retailers, and restaurants, supplying them with quality fruit. CanWest Farms has also expanded internationally, and to keep up with this demand it employs both traditional hand, and mechanical harvesting. The company is committed to growing, harvesting, and packaging a quality product on its 100 arced farms, and offers reputable customer service to all—from locals who buy local at neighbourhood farmer’s markets, and CanWest’s own Farmers Market, to local restaurants, retailers, and companies who purchase to distribute.
