Canadian Grocer announces inaugural Impact Award winners

The efforts of 28 companies positively impacting communities, employees, and the environment are recognized with new award

These days, businesses can’t just be all about sales and profits; consumers want to support brands that stand for something, and employees want to work at organizations that align with their personal values—whether that’s related to sustainability, community involvement, diversity, employee support, or all of the above.

To celebrate Canadian grocery retail and CPG businesses that are going above and beyond to make the world a better place, this year we launched the Canadian Grocer Impact Awards.

We recognized 33 winners in four categories: Sustainability; Supporting Employees; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; and Community Service.

Over the next couple days we will be sharing how each of our winners made a positive impact in their respective categories. Keep checking for all the latest news.
