A Western Canadian Story


In 1978, Hollshop Imports Ltd located in Langley BC, was established in order to provide a wide selection of favourite Dutch and Indonesian foods to the specialty European retail market across BC and Alberta.

Next door in Alberta, Lethbridge Food Marketing Ltd was established in 1991. Very early in our history we began to Import unique confectionary products from around the globe. Over time it became apparent that many of the European confections they were given access to were not readily available in the marketplace.

In the fall of 2010, Global Reach Confections Inc was established in order to make these uniquely European confections available to the Canadian consumer.

During the summer of 2013, our two companies with a long and successful history of working together in the confectionary and importing industry, began discussions with a view to maximizing the strengths of each company. We were able to conclude that joining together would enable us to more efficiently service our expanding customer base while at the same time assist in positioning our many customer's to meet the ever increasing demands of the consumer for worldwide selection, quality and value.

Hence the birth of GLOBAL REACH CONFECTIONS & MORE, on April 1st, 2014.

Our management team has identified a niche in the marketplace which allows us to introduce Brand Name Confections without compromising current agreements between International Companies and their large corporate retailers.

We do this by partnering closely with the Specialty Food Retailer as well as the Independant Grocery Retailer.

By expanding their core offering of quality Dutch and Indonesian products to include a wider selection of internationally recognized brands your Specialty Food Retailer is in a position to draw from a wider segment of the population thereby increasing their sales.

The Independant Grocer benefits by receiving access to a wide selection of quality Dutch and Indonesian foods as well as having access to International brands that are not readily available at the large national retailer because of contractual obligations yet, their customer will instantly recognize them and enjoy the selection, quality and value.

The biggest winner in this strategy is the Consumer and when the consumer wins.........EVERYONE WINS!


In addition to supplying the popular lines of bulk candy that our customers depend on, we have developed our very own brand called

"Dutch Traditions".
