WE’RE PROUD OF OUR ROOTS

The story of Ontario Potato began in 1926 on Claremont Street in Toronto, Ontario. Newly emigrated, Jimmy Cappuccitti opened a family grocery store stocked with fresh produce picked up directly from local farmers in and around Alliston, Ontario. Jimmy soon realized the high-demand for freshness and began delivering potatoes and produce, door-to-door from his single truck. It was that truck that would become the precursor to an entire fleet of trucks and the birth of OPDI Logistics some 30 years later.

The family began distributing potatoes and fresh produce at the Ontario Food Terminal (OFT) when it first opened its doors in 1954. Four generations, and over 55 years later, OPDI continues to distribute potatoes and produce at the OFT.

Our location near Alliston, ON facilitates easy access to all major highways and U.S. borders.
