Unico, which is Italian for unique, was founded in 1917 to cater for a growing community of immigrants from the Mediterranean in Toronto. The founder Edward Pasquale’s main objective was to bring Italian culture of eating to Canadians by distributing authentic Mediterranean style products and ingredients.

Today, Unico is part of the family-managed business Sun-Brite Foods Inc. and their products are available from coast to coast. In total, Sun-Brite Food Inc. produces over 160 different products that cater to all tastes and offer Canadians a complete meal solution. Products by Unico, which include past, olives, and cooking oils are available from most grocery stores across Canada.
