VANCOUVER, BC — Fresh produce marketer Oppy has been named one of Canada’s Top Employers for the second year in a row.

Mediacorp Canada Inc., which manages the national competition, along with 19 special-interest and regional competitions, recognizes employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces and progressive human resource policies.

“It is an absolute honor for Oppy to be chosen among the best companies in Canada yet again,” said Oppy Chairman, CEO and Managing Partner John Anderson. “First receiving this recognition in one of the most exceptionally challenging years, and yet again as we work to emerge from it, is an encouraging acknowledgement of the workplace we aspire to build every day. It reassures us that we are headed in the right direction as we grow our tomorrow.” 

Entrants are evaluated according to eight criteria which assess a variety of metrics including health and family-friendly benefits, training and skills development, financial benefits and compensation, work atmosphere and communications.  

“We are so proud of our team who have continued to show resilience, passion and persistence throughout the past year,” said Oppy Vice President of Talent and Culture and Chief People Officer Satri Alpine. “As they commit to bringing healthy produce to tables across North America, we will continue to build a workplace that is innovative, inclusive and well-positioned to deliver our purpose into the future.” 

Also in 2021, Oppy was selected by Deloitte as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 21 consecutive years, a BC Top Employers recipient and Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures awards.
