About Us

A Cut Above the Rest

We have over 40 years of experience in the foodservice industry, and we’ve noticed a significant gap. Never before have consumers been able to access the same top-quality meats available to professional chefs and high-end restaurants. Bow River Meat Market is changing the way Albertan families put food on the table. With two-day delivery service, we offer restaurant-grade meats, steaks, and other products to consumers at affordable, wholesale prices. Now, you can have the restaurant experience in the comfort of your home. You’ve tried the rest, but Bow River Meat Market has the best.

Our Story

Passionate About Protein For More Than 40 Years

Bow River Meat Market began as a family-owned Calgary-based company in 1976. We believe in the value of products made in Canada; our country has some of the finest natural resources, and we’re proud to support the local economy and farming industry. During the past four decades, we’ve built relationships with local restaurants and retailers that rely on the consistency and quality of our meat in delivering excellence to their own customers. Filling custom orders and ensuring top-notch quality has set us apart from our competitors in the industry.


A few years ago, we began thinking about what it would take to bring the restaurant experience into the home of the consumer. We were troubled by the significant gap that exists between fresh and frozen meat products found in grocery stores and our own quality cuts. That idea set us on a mission to revolutionize the meat supply industry.


One of the things that sets us apart from our counterparts is our exclusive, optimal aging process. Our “Cornerstone Aging” guarantees the quality that other meats are missing. This process slowly brings the product to the peak of tenderness and taste over a minimum of 30 days. You owe it to yourself to test the difference! In addition, we also base our costs on precision cuts. No longer will you need to overpay for meat you don’t need. Plus we’re cutting down on food waste to make for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly process.


Today, we still supply our top-graded proteins to restaurants and retailers across the city, but we also provide the same luxury experience to everyday consumers. We’re proud of the relationships we’ve built with local suppliers and chefs, and we’re looking forward to building relationships with you by providing exceptional customer service, outstanding products, and superior sustainability. Our story has been 40 years in the making, and it isn’t over yet! Join us to be a part of what happens next!
