Sysco Victoria began as North Douglas Foodservice Distributors in the late 1970s. It started in Victoria as a distribution company delivering specialty foods to restaurants on Vancouver Island looking for hard-to-find imported grocery products. The business expanded and in 2000 was purchased by Sysco Corporation.
Today, Sysco Victoria services food-service establishments and institutions on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and Powell River. — Times Colonist
