Canadian Grocer’s August issue is available online!

Working from home?


In these unusual times, it can be a struggle to find reasons to celebrate. Living under the cloud of COVID-19, many of us are stressed out and the prolonged uncertainty (when will this all be over?) is wearing very thin.

But in this climate, perhaps more than ever, it’s important to recognize those individuals among us who are rising above it all, stepping up and making a difference. With this in mind, we’re delighted to shine a light on the contributions of some exceptional women in our industry—our 2020 Star Women in Grocery winners!

Selected from a record number of nominations, this year’s 38 winners work in all areas of the industry in roles ranging from plant, food safety and store managers to marketing directors, e-commerce leaders and even a CEO. Learn more about these incredible women here.

Also in this issue, writer Rosalind Stefanac looks at the growing appetite for locally sourced food and whether or not the trend is sustainable.

And, writer Michele Sponagle examines how nostalgia for sandwiches and a desire for comfort food has fuelled consumer sales of pre-packaged meat and cheese.

All this and much more in the August issue of Canadian Grocer. Happy reading!
