What began as a small 1,000 sq.ft. plant has progressed over the last 40 years into a 25,000 sq.ft. production plant overlooking Canmore’s Three Sister Mountains.
The European style sausages, hams and air dried meats quickly found their way into Banff’s famous Hotels and Restaurants, and can now be found at gourmet dining establishments, fine hotels and first rate food markets throughout Alberta.
Valbella’s commitment to excellence paired with its European tradition and simple love for fine food, has allowed it to stand out as one of Western Canada’s most recognized meat processors. Walter’s constant product innovation and keen market sense keeps customers and top chefs awaiting new and tantalizing products, whether they be for a gourmet menu, or simply for a backyard BBQ party.

Canadian Mountain Holidays has been serving our international clientele Valbella Gourmet products for over 30 years. We were Valbella's first wholesale account and our continued success is in part because of the great products we source, and we have never found a peer to Valbella's quality. Valbella's is quite simply the best at what they do.Rick Carswell, Food and Beverage Manager Canadian Mountain Holidays, Banff, Alberta
