Nutra Services

The roots of Nutra Services as a company caring for others are deep. In 1978 then President, Fred Timman, founded United Purchasing Systems, which became one of the major purchasing groups in Ontario for Long Term Care facilities.

Excellence in nutritional services, health and safety, sustainability practices and Regulatory compliance are the hallmarks of Nutra Services.

Fred realized that his customers wanted a more on hands approach and greater involvement in the day to day dining and nutritional service operations thus he sold United Purchasing Systems and in 1981 founded Nutra Services .

In today’s highly regulated environment more and more retirement and nursing homes are realizing the benefits of having an expert operate the dining and nutritional services allowing the home staff to focus on resident care.

Nutra Services has grown over the years to become a leading provider of nutritional services to the retirement and long term care industry.

In 2011 Fred and Nutra Services joined the Brown’s Fine Food Services organization to create the largest privately owned dining and nutritional services company in Canada. This next step in the growth and evolution of Nutra Services  provided a platform for growth and innovation allowing Nutra Services to maintain its leadership role in the industry.
