In answer to your questions and concerns about the noticeable changes in your local Picard’s store, we can explain.

Dec 2, 2012

YES, THERE ARE NOW TWO TYPES OF PICARD RETAIL STORES

In answer to your questions and concerns about the noticeable changes in your local Picard's store, we can explain.  Our retail stores in St.Jacobs, Talbotville, Waterdown and Niagara-on-the-Lake, will remain unchanged selling the products that we have always manufactured  - our  freshly roasted nuts and crispy potato chip covered peanuts, same beernuts, same confectionery specialties, 14 kinds of brittle, sponge toffee and caramel corns, same smooth premium chocolate- milk, dark and white covered almonds, raisins, peanuts, blueberries, cranberries, coffee beans over 30 kinds of specialty coated nuts and fruits. Boxed chocolates, fresh caramels and list goes on.

You will no longer  find the  same products that we have been manufacturing for the past 20 years in our Waterford plant, at the stores  located in Windham Centre, Morriston, Fonthill and Woodstock.

We regret this inconvenience, the noticeable changes and hope that someday we will be able to continue to supply all of the Picard's retail stores.

IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH

Oct 14, 2012

By mid-November, after more than  two long years of preparation, building a facility, getting the necessary approvals, installing new equipment and test brewing, we are ready to launch "THE BREWERY FARM". Yes, we now have a facility where we are starting to brew OUR OWN  line of Premium Beers. Our brand name is RAMBLIN' ROAD (www.ramblinroad.ca) , we are preparing to offer a "COUNTRY PILSNER" a "COUNTRY LAGER" and a"COUNTRY IPA".  On the farm we have been growing 8 varieties of hops for 5 years now and are formulating to use this dynamite connection to agriculture in our brews. Cheers!

 

YOUR ENQUIRIES ABOUT A BRANTFORD RETAIL STORE

Oct 14, 2012

There is now a retail confectionery store open in the City of Brantford, using the "Picard's" brand name, in a similar font display.  Rest assured that there is no affiliation with the Picard's brand name, nor is this a franchise operation of the Picard's retail stores; that you are used to. It appears to a sullen attempt to draw from our existing branding and our efforts over the last 20 years in the peanut, snack and confectionery business, in order to lend credibility to a third party venture.  We are not supplying this retail outlet and maintain no association with its operation. Enough said.

 

BUSINESS UPDATE!

Oct 14, 2012

There are a few changes happening right now within the family business.

There have always been two parts to the Ontario Peanut business and PICARD PEANUTS

PICARD PEANUTS LTD (1979) (Jim Picard Sr.)

(Windham Centre, Fonthill, Morriston & Woodstock)

PICARD FOODS LTD (1982) (the next generation- John & Renee)

St.Jacobs, Talbotville, Waterdown, Niagara-on-the-Lake & Vaughan (2013)

In September 2012, we were unable to reach a succession plan for the existing businesses.

SO WHAT'S NEXT

John and Renee Picard, who have been with the family business for 30 years, will continue to drive the existing business (J.D.Picard's Incredible Snack Co., Ltd. - St.Jacobs, Talbotville, Waterdown, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Vaughan 2013), forward.  Nothing has or will change within these retail locations

We wish our mother and father all the best in their decision to continue with Picard Peanuts Ltd.

OUR PRODUCT LINE AND AVAILABILITY

John and Renee have been actively involved in the development, design,  processing and manufacture of all the great products we currently offer for retail sale, since 1992. All of our manufactured products are produced at the Waterford Confectionery processing facility under the supervision of John & Renee Picard

These stores will remain unchanged

ST.JACOBS, TALBOTVILLE, WATERDOWN, N.O.T.L.

And our future retail location in  VAUGHAN (SUMMER 2013).

LATEST REVIEWS

Oct 14, 2012

For the week of October 2nd to the 8th, 2012, we have been sampling our first two beers, at the Norfolk County Fair in Simcoe, Ontario. The Country Pilsner and the Country Lager were a great hit. Yes !  we can produce a premium beer in Norfolk and thousands of samplings for the week will attest to that. The support and encouragement has been tremendous, we thank you for the kind words and support. See you in November when we ramp up for the retail trade. (On site only, La Salette)
