Legendary chef Matty Matheson is bringing a delightful dose of retro nostalgia to pantries across Canada, launching a host of new products from his brand Matheson Food Company. Inspired by the 1930s design aesthetic, Matty's stylish products are bringing a bold yet classy familiarity to the packaging world.

When we look back at adverts of the 1930s, there's a nostalgic appeal that's been somewhat disregarded in the sea of garishly bright design trends of recent times. While there are echoes of a retro revival in contemporary packaging design, Matheson Food Company embraces the aesthetic, bringing us simplicity, sophistication and effortless style.
