Feb. 23, 2012, Leamington, Ont. — Mastronardi Produce has again been named one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies. It’s the third year in a row the Leamington-based company has earned the designation.

Established in 1993, Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million.

Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

• Outperformed their competitors.

• Created jobs.

• Achieved sustainable growth.
• Excelled both at home and abroad.
