sysco delivery

This massive food distributor in Canada is now doing online grocery delivery

One of Canada's largest food distributors is hopping on the home delivery bandwagon with an online ordering platform.

You've probably seen Sysco trucks rumbling around during more normal times, likely carrying the potatoes that are going into your poutine, the produce that makes your side salad and pretty much any other wholesale ingredient restaurants use.

In mid-April, Sysco Toronto became the first Sysco company in Canada to offer the company's new next-day home delivery service.

The wholesaler operates on a Costco-like bulk model, meaning this new system should be a good way of getting large amounts of supplies to your house without having to step outside. Delivery is free on orders over $300, and you just have to type in your postal code to see if you qualify.

There's even a "hot deals" section where you might find items like a 24-pack of pork ribeye steaks for $24 or six-packs of iced coffee for $6. They've also been doing in-person "truckload sales" where you can order and pick up limited quantities of restaurant-quality products on site for huge price breaks.

You can order produce, meat, poultry, seafood, frozen foods, dairy products, dry goods, household supplies, foods for special diets and prepared meals through the website. The best part is, Sysco donates 15 meals to hunger relief organizations in Canada for every delivery order placed.
