Canada’s Best Managed Companies (Platinum Status)
This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, and Queen’s School of Business and is decided on by three independent judges who choose the top 50 company winners from across the country.
This award brings recognition to the strengths of the Oxford Frozen Foods. In particular, our highly dedicated and committed employees, our long-term loyal growers and customers, and our unique culture. Our culture is driven by strong rural, family, and farming values and the mantra of always looking for a better way of doing things, of encouraging and driving innovation, and of being efficient and productive while ensuring we continually improve our leadership in quality. We are always reinvesting in research and in our production capabilities, and we are fortunate to have an owner in John Bragg who is totally committed to both continuously reinvesting in the business and to the long-term success of the wild blueberry industry. This combination of strengths, together with the fact that wild blueberries are one of the healthiest foods available worldwide, has enabled the company and the industry to grow and also provides a great recipe for growth well into the future.
