About Us

Historical photo

These people are very knowledgeable. They have worked with us a long time and really go the extra mile.

Honor Foods was founded in 1949 as a redistributor of center-of-the-plate foods. We have since grown into the region’s premier provider of grocery, frozen and dairy products, representing more than 275 brand-name food suppliers and carrying more than 2,500 items in stock. In addition, our exclusive house brands — Colony Lane, Valley Fresh, St. Honorine and Misty Harbor — have a well-earned reputation for top quality and value at a very competitive price.

But great products and prices are just part of what we bring to our customers. We also provide them with superior sales and service support. We offer customized reporting and distribution channel troubleshooting. Fast simplified order processing and payment options. Marketing and sales support. Group buying, asset management and attractive mix-and-match minimums. Plus, our knowledgeable salespeople constantly check in with our customers, deliver insightful business solutions, and bring them new products for evaluation and follow-up.


In 2007, Burris Logistics acquired Honor Foods. Even though the Logistics business is different, Burris deals with many of the same vendors and now both companies are able to leverage their existing relationships, strengthen strategic partnerships, and improve purchasing positions.

In 2009 Honor and Burris Logistics added a new specialty dairy division by joining N. Winer and Son, of Springfield Massachusetts to our family. Now called Honor North, currently services foodservice distributors in 8 northeastern states and will complement the product assortment currently supplied through Honor in Philadelphia.
