OUR MILESTONES IN HISTORY


  • 1882
    George Weston laid the
    foundation for Weston
    Bakeries.

    The bakeries were built by the
    expertise, ingenuity, honest
    values, and ceaseless efforts
    of hundreds of men and
    women.

  • 1897
    George Weston built a state of the art Model Bakery in Toronto.

    Whether as plant workers, sales people or corporate executives, the hard work of these men and women turned George’s Toronto bakery into a national manufacturer of bread, biscuits and confectionaries.

  • 1928
    George’s son Garfield
    Weston incorporated
    George Weston Limited
    under the Dominion charter
    and soon sold shares in
    the family’s bread and
    biscuit company on the
    Toronto Stock Exchange.

  • 1970
    The bread and biscuit company
    proved to be the leader in its
    industry and reorganized into two
    separate divisions. This formed a
    new subsidiary company of George
    Weston Limited known as Weston
    Foods.

  • 1985
    After years of growth and
    change, including the sale of
    the biscuit and confectionary
    division, Weston Foods
    announced the addition of
    the frozen bakery division,
    Ready Bake.

  • 1988
    Weston Bakeries was the
    official bread supplier to the
    1988 Olympic Winter Games in
    Calgary building on its Olympic
    history as the official bread
    supplier to the 1976 Olympic
    Summer Games in Montreal.


  • 2007
    Weston Bakeries had a
    national celebration to
    commemorate its 125th
    year of operation.


  • 2010
    Weston Bakeries was the official bakery supplier to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
