The new April/May edition of Canadian Grocer is now online, and you can read it in Digital Flipbook.
Just in time for spring weather (we hope!) our April/May edition comes with a produce theme.
Check out our story on the 40-year search for a made-in-Canada pear and the people who finally brought it to market last fall.
If you spend anytime in your store’s produce department you’ll want to check out this month’s signature story: “10 timeless tips for produce managers.”
With the Canadian Produce Marketing Association show around the corner (April 12 to 14 in Calgary), our new edition features a one-on-one interview with Mike Furi, VP of procurement and pricing at The Grocery People, and CPMA chair for the past year.
More produce stories in this issue can be found in our Store of the Month (Joe Greco’s Concord Food Centre in Thornhill, Ont.) and in our Aisles department, where we look at growing your own store’s vegetables, plus the cold-pressed juice trend.
If you’re more of a meat and potatoes reader, check out Ipsos VP Kathy Perrotta’s column “To Meat or Not to Meat” on the popularity of flexitarian eating (less meat, rather than no meat).
And don’t miss consulting editor George Condon as he tackles the thorny issue of a grocery code of conduct. It’s in his regular Checking Out column. (In case you’re wondering, George is for a code).
All of these articles, and more, are just a click away here.
If you’re a subscriber to Canadian Grocer magazine, don’t worry: your print edition is in the mail and should arrive soon.
Happy reading! And let us know what you think of this issue at [email protected]
