- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
KINGSVILLE, ON - The coveted Canada's Best Managed Awards have been presented, and Mastronardi's name is on the list - again!
Hundreds of companies have competed for the title since its conception in 1993, and Mastronardi is celebrating its sixth year in a row as a recipient. What makes this award so challenging is the number of categories evaluated by the program.
“Today’s market place is not just about financial performance; it is also about investment in the people,” Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte, said in a press release. “Mastronardi Produce invests in their team to build up a strong and stable company.”
Deloitte was one of five presenters of the prestigious award, along with CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and Mackay CEO Forums. Together they look at several aspects of eligible companies, including sustained growth, financial performance, management practices, as well as the efforts of the entire organization as a whole.
Mastronardi has brought the best produce to their customers for 60 years, while focusing on healthy recipes and amazing flavor for families and foodies across the world. Among various programs to promote healthy eating, the company most recently traveled from coast to coast on its SUNSET® Flavor Tour to educate consumers on the benefits of greenhouse growing and healthy living. This is just one facet of what Mastronardi has invested into the people, and fourth generation CEO Paul Mastronardi is both proud and honored that this continues to be recognized.
“We’re thrilled to be named one of Canada’s Best for the sixth consecutive year,” Mastronardi said in the release. “My grandfather always said that a meal is only as good as what you put in it, and that’s how we look at our business. Our ongoing success is made possible by every one of our hardworking employees, including those at our facilities in other countries, and I would like to thank them all.”
Numerous companies compete with the hopes of being named as one of Canada’s Best in a rigorous, independent process.
Congratulations to Mastronardi Produce for repeatedly being recognized by the program.
