Smith Snacks is a name recognized in Newfoundland and Labrador for providing quality, ready to eat meals and sweet goods to the most discriminating of tastes for over 45 years.

Our Roots

Our production plant is located in Norman's Cove, NL, approximately one hour west of St. John's. We have an onsite bakery, assembly, and packaging / distribution facility that employs over 50 people.


Smith Snacks was founded in 1971 in Norman’s Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador, by Howard Smith, with the purpose of delivering fresh made sandwiches to the city of St. John’s. Mr. Smith prepared the products daily at home and then drove his catering unit 100 kms to St. John’s to meet with clients and personally deliver his products. With fresh products and direct customer service, the business grew rapidly.

In 1985, Mr. Smith expanded Smith Snacks by launching a wholesale division that offered Smith Snacks’ core product line. In 1994, the catering units were phased out completely.

A family owned and operated business, Smith Snacks was founded on good old fashioned family value and ideals. It still operates that way today.
