To preserve locally grown vegetables, the Sprague family built a seasonal cannery in Mountain View, Prince Edward County in 1925. The seasonal cannery turned into a permanent operation and the family has been canning natural and organic food products in the Bay of Quinte Region since then.
The company is now run by the fifth generation of the family and the line of soup and bean products under the Sprague brand has expanded considerably. In addition to their own products, the cannery also produces for a group of private labels.
Sprague products are distributed throughout Canada and the United States.
