KINGSVILLE, ON - Mastronardi Produce has been named among Canada’s Best Managed Companies once again, celebrating nearly a decade on the list of one of the country’s leading business award programs.
“Receiving this honor for the ninth consecutive year is a testament to the drive and determination of all our employees,” CEO Paul Mastronardi explained. “Thanks to our passionate and innovative team, we introduced some of our most creative products in our history. I’m grateful for their contributions and proud to share this recognition with them.”
Now in its 25th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices, according to a press release.
“Well-run companies are important to the economic health of our country. These companies serve as role models to help make all Canadian businesses better,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte, and Co-Leader for Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
The 2018 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability, and commitment to achieve sustainable growth. The program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group, and MacKay CEO Forums.
In 2017, Mastronardi Produce launched several new, innovative products, including:
- The Sweet Bites® Pail
- The Sunset Flavor Bowl™
- The You Make Me™ line of pasta kits that contain a perfect portion of pasta for two (or a side dish for four) a spice packet, and fresh tomatoes that enable consumers to prepare a home cooked meal in 15 minutes or less
2018 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honored at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 11, 2018. On that same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues key to the success of today’s business leaders.
