A family tradition since 1985
In 1985, Ken and Brian Woodward started Woodward Meats as a small steak cutting operation with a strong focus on quality and service. With commitment to these core values, the company gradually transformed into a large scale commercial butcher shop servicing foodservice establishments.
Fast-forward to present, Woodward Meats remains family owned and its direction as strong as ever - to stand out as Ontario’s premium meat supplier.
Woodward Meats is proud to work with foodservice establishments throughout Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area to provide chefs with an extensive selection of proteins including beef, poultry, pork, lamb, seafood and more from local, domestic and global producers.
We strive to search far and wide for the best product we can get our hands on, and it is through our strong partnerships with local Ontario farmers as well as producers across Canada and in other parts of the world that have allowed us to consistently deliver a diverse selection of exceptional tasting meat.

We've partnered with select local producers working on small family farms across the province to bring you traditionally raised products from right here in Ontario. Fed locally grown grass and grains and as much as possible the feed is grown on the farm that the animals are raised.
Take pride in contributing to the economic vitality, environmental health, and quality of life in the region. These farm-fresh products support the local economy and greatly reduce the environmental impact of transport.
The Canadian Agriculture industry is ever changing but one aspect has always remained strong – beef. While a large amount of our Canadian beef comes from Ontario, reaching out to other Provinces is required to take advantage of feed qualities specific to each particular region.
Additional domestic products sourced from Ontario and from other Provinces include Pork from Quebec and Lamb from Alberta.
