Vancouver, British Columbia-based fresh produce marketer Oppy has been named to Deloitte’s list of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 18th straight year.

Oppy has also been a member of Deloitte’s Platinum Club of top-ranked companies for 12 years running.

“It’s great be selected once again,” says John Anderson, Oppy’s chairman and CEO. “It’s an exciting time at Oppy. As our business continues to expand and evolve, we rely on our proven management philosophy to guide us as we grow. By encouraging collaboration across all channels of our business, we can move quickly and decisively toward our goals.”

Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business Magazine, Queen's Smith School of Business, and the TMX Group, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program recognizes organizations that have implemented world class business practices and created value in innovative ways. The Platinum Club honors top-performing companies that earn a place among the best for six years or more.

Applications are reviewed annually 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.
