It is to Mr. Benson Han, a Chinese native of Hangzhou in the Zhejiang Province, that we owe the existence of Akita Food.


Inspired by old family recipes and culinary tradition, in 1990, he founded Akita Food, a company specialized in producing and manufacturing Asian inspired sauces. Originally active in the foodservice and private label industries in Canada and the United States, Akita began distributing retail products across America at the beginning of 2006.Today Akita manufactures and distributes more than 60 tributary products of the most diverse oriental cuisine: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Korean, Cambodian and Indian.


In 2005, Akita’s management was entrusted to Mr. Frank Di Blasio. The Akita Food plant is situated in Anjou, on the island of Montreal.



At Akita, we believe firmly in the need for businesses to play a positive role in society and to promote and provide healthier choices. We strive for the highest standards of environmentally and ethically-sustainable business practices, both in the products we carry and in the way we run our business.


  • SERVICE: Customer service is our specialty and our primary concern. In everything we do, we strive to provide a superior customer experience. 

  • KNOWLEDGE: We believe in providing our customers with the best possible guidance on the proper use and consumption of all health-related products which we carry.

  • QUALITY: We stand behind every product that we carry, both in terms of quality and in terms of production. If we are not satisfied that a product meets our high standards, we will not carry it. It’s that simple.



Based on our business philosophy of providing high-quality products and services, our Quality Policy guides the quality assurance system and covers everything from product development to sales.

In product development, we have a system in place to conduct and manage quality assessments of ingredients and materials, production processes, packaging materials, safe logistics, and label accuracy. In particular, we ensure all local food safety and quality regulations are met and that product labels adhere to all applicable requirements. We are dedicated to constantly maintaining high quality standards in all that we do in order to provide the best possible products for our customers.
