Since 1946 The Lekiu team is anchored by over 70 years of experience unmatched in other companies in the distributing industry. This is supported by long-term relationships with hundreds of suppliers and retail partners. These are the Lekiu Team’s advantages: industry experience and relationships.

Lekiu offers a sales and marketing network across Canada and the United States to both ethnic and mainstream markets.

This list includes: Walmart, Costco, Wholefoods, Empire Foods, Sobey/Safeway, Loblaws/T&T Supermarkets , Shopper Drug Mart, Overwaitea Food Groups/Save-on-Foods, and hundreds of other retail partners.


Lekiu Importing [LKI] is a privately held Canadian owned company, and is NOT a subsidiary or a division of retail or wholesale groups such as:

H.Y. Louie Co., Ltd, London Drugs, Fresh Street Market, Loblaws, T&T Supermarkets, Canda Six Fortune Enterprises. This allows LKI to cover 100% of the Canadian market without any conflicts of interest.

To reiterate, LKI offers the trade another function as a Canadian owned Wholesaler, and not a non Canadian Foreign wholesaler such as JFC International [Japan foods] Nishimoto /Wismettac Asian Foods Inc., or Tree of Life/KeHE Distributors.
