With several stores and hundreds of staff members, we are now one of the largest employers in the Central Vancouver Island area. QF has earned many regional, provincial and national Awards of Merit as an active member of the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers. This is a testament to the team and entrepreneurial spirit which has been so important to our success to date. Innovation has also been a large factor in establishing Quality Foods as a strong independent. Having introduced the first preferred shopper program in the Canadian grocery industry in 1991, to offering Western Canada's first online shopping service in 1997, QF continues a tradition of putting our customers first.
