Aug. 10, 2017, Leamington, Ont. – Joe Sbrocchi will assume the general manager role at the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG), effective Sept 18.

Sbrocchi has been active in a number of roles in the greenhouse sector for the last eight years. Previously he has held management roles with national retailers such as Sobeys and Walmart, providing a solid body of work throughout the entire value chain.

“We are pleased to have a quality leader join the OGVG at a point where his experience, skills and leadership can significantly support our sector,” said OGVG chair George Gilvesy.

“I believe my lifetime in produce and in particular the past eight years in the greenhouse sector have prepared me well for this role,” said Sbrocchi. “I am looking forward to representing Ontario greenhouse growers to the very best of my abilities.”

OGVG is responsible for licensing all growers, packers and marketers of Ontario greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. Currently, it has over 200 growers, representing nearly 2900 acres of high-tech hydroponic greenhouse production.
