How did you get your start in the produce industry?

Produce is in my genes. My first job after graduating from university was with Canada’s premier grocery company. It was the same company where my father spent his career working the produce departments across the organization. Although I began my career outside of produce, the entire produce office had worked alongside my father for many years. It wasn’t long before I got to know the group and eventually started working as an assistant category manager in the produce procurement office.
