Family Owned & Operated Since 1977
With a background in Engineering Technology, Thanos went back to his roots where his father taught him at a very young age how to run a successful retail business. His wife June was always interested in health foods and supplements and how well the body responded to them so in 1977 they decided to start Foods For Life.
Situated in Bloor West Village it has become a cornerstone of the landscape. Customers come from all over the province to get vitamins, supplements and health foods at discount prices. Come in and check out our anniversary specials. Our prices will WOW you!
Founder - Thanos Petsoulas
Thanos still keeps an eye on the store but works remotely and is enjoying semi-retirement and frequently travels between Florida, Toronto, Greece and North Carolina. June is watching down from above.
The store continues to be family-owned and operated and their daughter Michelle who worked at the store at a very young age is remotely involved in the day-to-day operations of the store with Paul and Tania and Evelyn providing the in-store management.
In 1975, Thanos along with Dr. Deitel published the article below.
Article: A calibration system for a Holter pump for hyperalimentation infusion
Mervyn Deitel · Athanasios Petsoulas · David Brenner
Abstract: Pumps are being used for precise, constant fluid delivery. Many pumps of reasonable cost require tedious calibration by serial changing of dial-settings, observing with a stopwatch the time for delivery of a certain volume of fluid, and then calculating the rate for each setting. A simpler method has been developed whereby, from a graph calculated from the observed rate at only two dial-settings, the dial is set to give an approximate flow-rate. Then, from a table previously calculated from a mathematical formula, the number of observed drops at the bedside is adjusted by the dial to give an exact flow-rate.Article · Apr 1975 · Annals of Biomedical Engineering.
