Mastronardi Produce Surpasses Decade-Long Recognition of Business Excellence

Kingsville, ON – The only thing better than being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed companies for an entire decade is to earn it for an 11th year in a row. Mastronardi Produce has once again been honored with this esteemed designation, retaining their prestigious Platinum Club status among Canada’s business elite.

“Each year brings a new set of challenges, opportunities, and growth but our mission is always the same – inspiring healthy living through WOW flavor experiences,” says Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO of Mastronardi Produce. “This award is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of our talented team across the business and their commitment to be the best in the industry.”

“Throughout the program’s 27-year history, thousands of private companies have competed for this designation,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s winners have proven that they are continually and deliberately pushing boundaries; they are competitive about their place on the world stage. This is evident in their unwavering commitment to clear and concise strategies, their capability to clearly prove and articulate their sustained competitive advantage, and their commitment to the lifeblood of their organization: their people, with specific focus on developing next gen leaders.”

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating investment in talent and technology, innovation in a competitive environment, and an increased focus on global competition.
