Oppy celebrates excellence as Canada’s Best Managed

Industry pioneer acknowledged for 23rd time

Oppy is once again recognized for its industry-leading performance, global business practices and sustained growth by receiving the prestigious 2024 Canada’s Best Managed Companies award for the 23rd time, while earning a place in  the program’s Platinum Club for 17 years running.

Canada’s Best Managed program awards excellence in private Canadian-owned companies with revenues of $50 million or greater. To attain the designation, companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy and innovation, culture and commitment, capabilities and governance, and financial performance. Oppy has been selected every year since it first applied in 2001.

“We are immensely proud of this achievement,” said Chair, CEO and Managing Partner John Anderson. “It fuels our drive to forge ahead, shaping a future where our company continues to thrive — especially at a time when challenges are everywhere. Kudos to the Oppy team whose dedication and hard work make this prestigious honor possible.”

As one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing innovative and world-class organizations, each year hundreds of companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent evaluation process. Applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of judges with representation from program sponsors and special guests. This year’s Best Managed companies share common themes like fostering a people-centric culture, targeting effective ESG (environmental, social and governance) strategies and accelerating operational digitization.

“For over 30 years, the Best Managed program recognizes companies who see challenges as checkpoints and obstacles as opportunities,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private, Global Best Managed Leader and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s winners, including Oppy, have combined strategic expertise and a culture of innovation to not only drive impactful business outcomes, but serve their communities as well. They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the work they do every day.”

Oppy outlined its culture of innovation to the judges in the second edition of its sustainability report, “Expect the world from us,” acknowledging the critical role it plays in driving change across the industry.

This recognition follows Oppy’s recent distinctions including BC’s Top Employers and Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ alongside Packer 25 recipient Marketing Communications Manager Kelsey Van Lissum at the end of 2023 and recent Grocery Business Magazine’s Outstanding Women in Produce honoree Sales Executive Kori Martin.
