Maple Leaf Foods Inc. (TSX: MFI) is a major Canadian consumer packaged meats company. Its head office is in Toronto. Maple Leaf Foods is the result of the 1991 merger between Canada Packers and Maple Leaf Mills. Canada Packers was founded in 1927 as a merger of several major Toronto meat packers, most prominently William Davies Company and was immediately Canadas largest food processor, a title it would hold for the next sixty years. Already in the 1930s, it used the brand name Maple Leaf for its pork products. Its main business was pork, and its massive operations processing hogs for export to the United Kingdom helped Toronto earn its nickname "Hogtown." Moving into western Canada it became Canadas largest beef slaughterer. In 1944, it also entered the tanning industry with the acquisition of Beardmore & Co.
Highest paying job titles at Maple Leaf Foods Inc include Maintenance Manager, Engineering Project Manager, and Production Manager
