Fourth-generation farmer Jason Persall from Waterford, Ontario, has been supplying the food industry with quality, local artisan foods since 2007. Today, his brand Pristine Gourmet, part of Persall Farms, carries top-quality dried beans, wine vinegars, soya sauce and cooking wines—all 100% Canadian. Jason supplies cranberry kidney beans, white and red kidney beans, white and black navy beans, and soybeans to discerning processors and consumers—including you, through Canada’s Own.

Together with his wife Linda and their family, Persall also operates Persall Naturals Ltd., which produces extra-virgin golden oils. Persall Naturals and Pristine Gourmet have won the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation and were selected by Toronto Life magazine as one of the 100 Must-Try-Before-You-Die Tastes of Toronto.
