“My very first job as a teenager was scooping ice cream over the summer in Ontario. The owner of the company was very entrepreneurial and decided to maximize the traffic in the parking lot by opening a fresh produce stand featuring local Ontario fruits and vegetables. I was the lucky employee that was asked to run the stand! It was a great experience that taught me a lot about business, and of course, fresh produce.
Having been on many of the Markon field tours over the years has made me thankful for the sacrifices, the passion, and the pride the people of this industry put forth to bring safe, healthy fresh produce to our customers. It’s an exciting time to be in the business.”
