Neal Brothers Distribution and Jonluca Enterprises have merged and launched a new business under the name of Jonluca Neal.

Jonluca Neal’s six founders have more than 150 years of Canadian natural food industry experience and bring together their warehousing, distribution, product, and brand recognition strengths to create Canada’s largest national, family-owned natural food distribution company. The newly merged business will represent ambient, refrigerated, and frozen goods from coast to coast.

Jonluca and Neal Brothers have each successfully blazed trails in the organic and natural food space and Jonluca Neal will continue to build upon this success. The new entity will operate out of a state-of-the-art facility in the GTA along with a Burnaby, BC warehouse. Jonluca Neal will assume all Neal Brothers brands, partners, retailers and will do so in a strategic, seamless manner.

“We are excited to bring our two Canadian family-owned businesses together to create Jonluca Neal,” says Chris Neal, new CEO of Jonluca Neal. “We also look forward to providing the best service levels for our brand partners and retailers. Jonluca and Neal Brothers will be much stronger together which will benefit all involved – most importantly our hard-working and dedicated family of employees.”

“Neal Brothers have been a valued partner to Longo’s for 35 years,” says Anthony Longo, president, and CEO Longo’s Markets. “Long before natural foods had a presence in major retailers they were pioneering and distributing some of the best brands – true trailblazers! We are delighted to see them join forces with Jonluca Enterprises to create the largest family-owned natural food distribution company in Canada.”

The six founders are Chris and Peter Neal of Neal Brothers, and Andrea Ramlogan, Casey, Angelo, and George Eleunsiniotis of Jonluca.

The newly merged business is a privately-owned natural foods distribution company employing 130 people and operating out of a 77,000 sq ft tri-temperature facility in the GTA and a 20,000 sq ft tri-temperature warehouse in Burnaby, B.C.
