Since 1969, Scott Labs Canada has been meeting the needs of the Canadian beverage industry with innovative solutions and products including fermentation goods, filtration media, equipment, packaging products and laboratory services.
Our family businesses, Scott Laboratories Inc. (USA) and Scott Laboratories Ltd. (Canada) are privately held companies specializing in value added products for the North American wine, cider, craft brewing and distilled spirits industries. The national head officies of both companies (Petaluma, CA and Niagara on the Lake, ON) serve as the primary distribution points for activity in each country, but are augmented with additional regional warehouses both in Canada and the USA to best meet the needs of our customers.
Our predecessor firm (the Berkeley Yeast Laboratory) was literally founded in the weeks prior to the end of Prohibition in 1933. The mission of the new company was to help customers produce better products for THEIR customers. Value added was a core principal then. It remains a core value eight and a half decades later.
Our first products were lab services and yeast. In the years that followed the needs of our industry customers led us first to cellar supplies, then to packaging and finally into processing and bottling equipment. It has been a 85 year evolution driven by the concept of adding value.
Our current product portfolios include some of the most famous names in the wine, craft brewing and spirits industries. In some cases we have our own proprietary products (such as Sparkolloid and Scottzymes) while in other cases we work with partner firms. You can checkout virtually all of our offerings on this website.
