“Today’s marketplace is not just about the investment in the product or service, it is also about the investment in the people,” said John Hughes, awards program leader from Deloitte. “JemD Farms invests in their team to build a strong and sustainable company.”

JemD Farms is the first Canadian/Mexican owned greenhouse company in North America to be able to offer consumers year-round quality produce.

A strategy of vertical integration allows it to implement full traceability systems, and has made them a leader within the Produce Traceability Initiative.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of such a wonderful group of award winners and to be receiving this prestigious award,” said company president Jim DiMenna.

“Our company goal of constant evolution and continual growth is very important to our team, having this award bestowed upon our company is truly an honor.”

Established in 1993, the Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program, recognizing companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways.

Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel that evaluates how companies address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
