The Dana Difference

We’re not your traditional on-site food service company. From culinary creativity to our shared passion for fresh, local ingredients, this is what makes Dana different.

Inspired by seasonal ingredients, traditional comfort food and the latest food trends, we create custom menus full of fresh meals, soups, stocks and sauces that are always prepared from scratch. Our chefs are also passionate about creating global and specialty menus that appeal to diverse tastes.

We believe that processed foods with chemicals and ingredients we can’t pronounce don’t make for a very appetizing food experience. If you serve pre-packaged or canned foods, your guests and patrons will know it. Fresh food is more flavourful, more sustainable and makes your food service offering special.

Our blend of local sourcing, culinary craftsmanship and inherently healthy menu choices gives guests an elevated dining experience. From access to local Ontario greenhouses that provide us with fresh produce year round to the fresh herbs we harvest from our own kitchen gardens, our menus always feature an added layer of local flavour.

Transforming the food service experience. Every day.

These are more than just words to us. We want both you and your guests to recognize our brand by how we create and innovate your food services, all to your taste. By offering a premium food service experience no other traditional on-site food service company can, we ensure your program will reflect your vision, culture and identity.

We believe fresh, high-quality ingredients are integral to exceptional food preparation and presentation. That’s why we source them from local, Canadian producers, greenhouse growers and dedicated farmers who meet our standards for our inspired, made-from-scratch meals.

Organizations seeking an alternative to the large, international conglomerates or under-resourced independent operators will appreciate our strong culinary focus, client-specific programs, transparency, integrity and responsive management style. Some have called it the Dana Difference. We’re often asked what makes Dana different, and it’s these unique qualities that benefit our partners, customers and suppliers.
