Our Story

The family-run business, owned and operated by Jackie and Jim Rowe, began with a one-acre plot in 1997 and a vision to introduce the finest locally grown garlic to Ontario kitchens.

The Garlic Box is Canada's leading producer of premium Ontario-grown garlic food products, from fresh garlic bulbs to individually quick-frozen peeled cloves and fully prepared gourmet garlic preserves, sauces and salad dressings, condiments, seasonings and soups.

  Fresh garlic bulbs from the first harvests were originally collected in repurposed apple boxes, prompting Jackie to coin the company name, “The Garlic Box,” in 1998. She began to use some of the bounty to make garlic products, originally selling at local food fairs and then by mail order.

A commitment to sustainable harvesting practices for root-to-leaf eating maintains the high quality of all the products.

The Garlic Box is a long-time member of Ontario Garlic Growers Association (OGGA), a proud supporter and contributor to the local Huron County agri-sector and economy, and a corporate member of the World Wildlife Fund.

The Garlic Box's humble origins were cultivated to become Canada's premiere leading company of value-added food products made with locally grown garlic and supplier of fresh-market garlic bulbs.

The early adoption of a branding strategy to differentiate Ontario garlic's distinctive attributes have led to innovative processes and products making The Garlic Box an award-winning company.
