Mastronardi Produce named one of Canada's Best Managed Companies

Mastronardi Produce is proud to be one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for the fifth consecutive year. This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen's School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums.

"We would like to congratulate Mastronardi Produce and its entire workforce. Achieving Canada's highest level of Canadian business excellence takes a united effort and we are privileged to acknowledge such a strong team," said John Hughes, National Leader of Canada's Best Managed Companies and Managing Partner, Growth Enterprises, Deloitte.

60 years ago, Mastronardi Produce began as the Canadian pioneer of the greenhouse industry. Today, the company is led by fourth generation president Paul Mastronardi, who searches the world for new innovations and unique flavour, just like his grandfather did. In 1995, Mastronardi Produce introduced the Campari® brand cocktail tomato, the first tomato to be recognized by name. Since then, the company has launched a number of successful tomato brands including the Kumato(tm), SUNSET's Simply Unique Brown Tomato(tm), Angel Sweet(tm) Miraculously Sweet Tomatoes(tm) and most recently, the Y.E.L.O.(tm) brand cocktail tomato, with flavour as bright as its colour.

"It is a huge accomplishment to be named one of Canada's Best Managed companies for five consecutive years," stated CEO Paul Mastronardi. "I am extremely proud and would like to extend my thanks and congratulations to each and every employee who made this possible, including those at our operations in other countries."

Since first being named as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies in 2009, Mastronardi Produce has continued growing exponentially. In addition to quality and flavour, Mastronardi is known for their sustainable business practices, from growing to packaging to distribution, as outlined in their Green Grass Project(tm). Their commitment to sustainability extends to all of their operations, including their greenhouse Envirofresh Farms, located in Sombra, Ontario, which is the first carbon negative greenhouse in North America.

"My family has been passionate about growing flavourful produce for over 60 years," said Mastronardi. "It is an honour to continue to do what we love and to be recognized for it in such an extraordinary way."
