Saveon Foods celebrates 100 years



The Overwaitea Food Group and Save-On-Foods rolled 100 years of history to the Fort & Foul Bay Save-On-Foods location Friday as it wrapped up its 100-day Travelling Road Show.

The innovative travelling display is designed to share the B.C. company’s 100-year history using information graphics, museum displays, in-store events and even a 1915 Model-T Ford.

Store managers from each of the Victoria Save-On-Foods gathered at the Fort & Foul Bay location Friday afternoon to celebrate with shoppers, suppliers and area residents. Guests enjoyed a great day filled with live entertainment, vendor demos, a hot dog sale benefiting BC Children’s Hospital and lots of fun for the entire family.

“It’s great to be a part of a company that has cared about its customers for the past 100 years and this Road Show allows us to really showcase how we’ve continued to adapt to our customers’ changing needs through the decades,” says Darrell Jones, Save-On-Foods President. “We’re thrilled to have been able to welcome the community to come and celebrate this milestone with us and we can’t wait to be around to serve them for the next 100 years and beyond!”
