Kingsville, ON (May 9, 2023) – Mastronardi Produce has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 14th year in a row and is encouraging Canadians to pursue a lifelong career with the company in the greenhouse produce industry. Mastronardi Produce is a fourth-generation family-owned business and the leading greenhouse operator in North America. With headquarters in Kingsville, Ontario, the company with small-town roots offers big career opportunities in controlled environment agriculture (CEA).
“This recognition is a testament to the talented people building careers at Mastronardi Produce,” said Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO of Mastronardi Produce. “We wouldn’t be here without our employees, and we are proud to offer unique, lifelong career opportunities for people who want to grow with us.

That’s why we hope more Canadians will be inspired to join our Flavor Revolution.”
Mastronardi Produce has long called flavor the driving force behind the company since its founding by Umberto Mastronardi in the 1940s. Today, over 800 Canadians help carry on that legacy at facilities in Ontario and British Columbia with additional employees in neighboring United States and Mexico. Banded together under one ‘Flavor Nation’, employees lead a wide range of areas from research and development, sales, and marketing to operations, growing, and quality inspection. Mastronardi Produce employees work at state-of-the-art greenhouses, offices, and distribution centers and have earned the company numerous awards for quality, flavor, and innovation.
“The Best Managed program recognizes companies who combine strategic expertise and a culture of innovation with a steadfast commitment to their communities,” said Lorrie King, partner at Deloitte Private and co-leader for Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s winners, including Mastronardi Produce, have demonstrated an increased focus on environmental, social, and governance themes as means to drive impactful and sustainable business outcomes. Their unwavering dedication to their core purpose, and to enhancing client relationships, cultivating a healthy culture with their employees, and serving their communities, set the standard of excellence for Canada’s business ecosystem.”
