In Memoriam: Wilhelm Huber Sr.


Wlihelm Huber Sr. was the founder of Piller’s Fine Foods. He was 88 years old.

He built his business from the ground up into the thriving company it is today. Huber, a master butcher, and George Piller, opened the business in 1957, a small shop in Waterloo, Ont., each investing $500 in the new business. Years later, Huber’s brothers Edward and Heinrich joined the company known as Piller’s Sausages and Delicatessens Limited. The company was acquired by Premium Brands Holdings Corp. in 2011, but the next generation of the three brothers still works at the company.
