Started in 1998 by Annie Moss and her husband Randy Hopper, Discovery Organics is a certified organic fresh produce wholesaler located in Vancouver, British Columbia, according to a press release. The company currently has warehouses in Vancouver and Calgary, Alberta, and services Canadian retailers, restaurants, processors, and buying groups year-round.

What began as a mission to develop markets for local organic farmers has evolved into a business that sources directly from organic farms, ranches, and orchards across the Western Hemisphere, especially those with a strong connection to the Fair Trade movement.

Effective July 1, 2021, the new ownership group was appointed to lead the company in future growth

As the wholesaler continues to wield its strong understanding of food systems and the interconnected nature of the food industry to grow important relationships from farm to table, a new ownership group has taken root. Included in the group are:

  • Stefan Misse – President
  • Viviana Marino – Financial Controller
  • Damien Bryan – Vice President Business Development
  • Newry Lee – Customs and Logistics Manager
  • Brody Irvine – Senior Purchasing Manager
