John Metz "J.M." Schneider
Birth: Feb. 17, 1859
Death: Feb. 23, 1942

Businessman, Entrepreneur. He and his wife, Helena, were the founders of Schneider Foods Ltd. A native of Berlin (later Kitchener), Ontario, he was working as a butcher in 1890 when he came up with the idea of creating his own meat business. The company which specialized in wieners, luncheon meat, bacon, ham, grocery products, specialty meats, and sausage, quickly expanded after its founding. In 2003 Schneiders Foods was purchased by rival, Maple Leaf Foods, which maintained the Schneiders name and logo. He passed away in Kitchener, Ontario, in February of 1942, six days after his 83rd birthday.
