A Family of Community-minded Businesses

The great success of Paletta International, Penta Properties, Princess Gates Entertainment and Tender Choice Foods, is based on the dedication and strong relationship the Paletta family has with each other and the community in which they work. These companies are Canadian owned and family-managed, with the first firm, Paletta International, started by Pasquale (Pat) Paletta (Burlington’s 2013 Entrepreneur of the Year) in 1951. Following the Second World War, Pat immigrated to Canada from Italy. He moved to Burlington in 1964 and opened a 10,000-square foot meat packing plant, which today has increased in size to over 200,000 square feet. Paletta International is the largest private land owner and developer in Hamilton and the Region of Halton. Article courtesy of Burlington Community Foundation
