Longo's Family Standards

Since 1956 we’ve been guided by the simple principle that we wouldn’t serve your family anything we wouldn’t be happy to serve our own. Today, that means products that are responsibly sourced, made with care, and fairly priced. It means that not all cuts of meat make the cut. It’s baking with real butter instead of that fake stuff. And it’s working hard to ensure the only thing spoiled in our store is you. If that sounds like the kind of place for you and your family, we’d be honoured to serve you.

GREAT BEEF IS RARER THAN YOU THINK.

Unlike other grocery stores we only sell Triple A Grade beef that’s been aged for 21 days. Other grocery stores only age theirs for 14 days. Sure, it takes a little more time, but the result is a more tender, and tastier beef. We think that’s worth waiting for.

Take your time picking. We sure did.

As early as 5am, six days a week, you can find us down at the Ontario Food Terminal hand-selecting the best of the bunch, basket, and bushel. That’s why our stores are always filled with the freshest fruits and veggies.

THE LARGEST SELECTION OF LOCAL MEATS AND CHEESES.

You don’t always have to go overseas to source the tastiest stuff. Longo’s has the largest selection of local meats and cheeses of any grocery store in Ontario. It’s more parmesan, pancetta, and prosciutto than you can shake a toothpick at.

EXPERTISE IN EVERY AISLE.

Unlike other grocery stores, Longo’s has passionate food experts in every department to help you make the most of your meals. Meat experts that always know the perfect cut, cheese mongers that let your try before you buy, and professional cake decorators on staff.

"We’ll only serve your family what we’d be happy to serve our own."
