Home » Food » Follow Friday: Neal Brothers Foods

Today is Follow Friday in the “Twitterverse”  so I thought it would be an ideal day to blog about the Neal Brothers.

I met the Neal Brothers (Chris and Peter) back in the early 1990’s at the Good Food Festival. At that time, I was not a food sales rep or a food blogger – just a hungry consumer that was interested in new products! Over the last two decades, I have continued to bump into them and have continued to watch their business grow and grow and grow.

In fact they are celebrating their 25th anniversary and to help them celebrate…I interviewed them!!

    Thanks for the information on the Neal Brothers. It made me rush out today to buy their arrabatica pasta sauce at my local Ottawa Produce Depot! I’m looking forward to trying it for tonight’s dinner. I really enjoy reading about new-to-me local or Canadian products. Thanks!
