Our Story

From selling pickles in the streets of Manhattan to becoming a multibillion dollar company.

Bloch & Guggenheimer and the B&G brand were founded in 1889 by the Bloch and Guggenheimer families, immigrants who came to America seeking a better life. They began by selling pickles in the streets of Manhattan, and the B&G brand continued to grow over the years because the Bloch and Guggenheimer families steadfastly placed the quality of their products above all else. The B&G brand formed the nucleus of B&G Foods when it was founded in 1996.

Today, B&G Foods’ family of brands includes a diverse portfolio of well-known and loved brands, including 15 brands offered by B&G Foods Canada, and our commitment to food safety and quality remains our number one priority.

B&G Foods Canada was founded in 2011. B&G Foods Canada’s headquarters have been in Mississauga, Ontario since 2016.
