It's about that time of year that we all start getting excited about warmer weather, barbecues and all the joys of eating al-fresco.
If you’re daydreaming about backyard barbecues, make sure your menu includes dill-icious CO-OP GOLD PURE® Pickles and Relishes!
These pickles are a true farm-to-fork product. Featuring all locally grown cucumbers, dill and garlic, these pickles taste closer to homemade pickles than anything you normally find in a supermarket.
Production with Purpose
In 2019, Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) contributed $500,000 to a major expansion project at the Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre Inc. (Food Centre) in Saskatoon. The Food Centre’s expansion, estimated at $7.5 million, included new canning equipment that the centre is using to bring more locally grown products to Co-op customers.
Co-op Gold Pure Pickles and Relish were some of the first products to come off the canning line as part of a collaboration between FCL, the Prairie Fresh Food Corporation and The Cucumber Man. Since most pickles currently come from the United States or India, this initiative represents a great step forward in bringing Prairie-produced products to consumers in a way that only Co-op can.
Co-op is proud to continue our long-term partnership with the Prairie Fresh Food Corporation and The Cucumber Man. Our Co-op Gold Pure Pickles and Relish are not simply transactional, but also represent a long and fruitful commitment to great food, top-of-the-vine flavour and community growth.
Take Your Pick(le)
Co-op Gold Pure Pickles and Relishes might not have the mileage of other pickles on the shelf, but they certainly pack a punch. Canadian-grown and Canadian-made, they truly are the pick(le) of the bunch.
Looking for a way to enjoy these great products? Indulge in a pickle straight from the jar, or try adding pickles or relish to one of our burger or hotdog recipes:
Not only are Co-op Gold Pure Pickles and Relishes perfect for giving your favourite foods an exciting little boost, you can also use them to give your favourite (and oh-so Canadian) cocktail a unique kick! Add just a touch of pickle juice to our Kickin' Pickled Caesar recipe and never look back.
