opened its doors for business on September 10, 1990 and continues to
be a key supplier to many restaurants and stores through out
Breton and mainland Nova Scotia.
Atlantic Meats was founded by Eric Dolan and his wife Cathy
Dolan with several staff members buying shares in the business and
believing in the future success of the business.
In January of 2002, Eric and Cathy retired from the business
and their son Sandy took over as president of the company.
In May of 2004, Sandy purchased the shares
from Eric and Cathy and remains President and owner to present day.
worked in the meat industry for most of his working life. He was the
branch manager for the Sydney plant for Swift and Gainers for 35 years
until their closure in the late 1980ís.
In his words, the closure of the Sydney branch was a corporate
decision out of Toronto even though the branch made money for the
company right up until the day it closed.
With this knowledge in hand, the idea for Atlantic Meats was
born. After several years
of hard work and at age 59, Eric Dolanís dream for Atlantic Meats
finally came true when it opened for business in 1990.
Meats continues to operate on much of the same principals that were
put in place by Eric and Cathy.
We pride ourselves in great customer service.
Our staff of which several of them were former Swift and
Gainers employees is knowledgeable and hard working.
With the generous continued support of customers, Atlantic Meats
will continue to be a strong player in the supply chain for many of
the Nova Scotia
stores and restaurants. We
hold food safety as our highest priority.
In closing, we
take no order for granted and strive for quality every time at
competitive prices. We
take pride in being your Local supplier in this global industry.
