Canada’s first Grocery Heroes Day is just around the corner and grocery retailers and suppliers across the country will be recognizing their employees for their integral efforts on July 19.
The initiative is being supported by the Government of Canada, provincial premiers across the country and countless grocery retailers and suppliers.
“However your organization chooses to celebrate and recognize your employees, I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to all frontline grocery industry workers for all they have done and continue to do to provide essential services and keep Canadians safe and healthy during these unprecedented times,” says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Quebec Premier François Legault: “I join with the other first ministers from across the country in applauding the essential jobs and hard work accomplished by workers in the food sector. They are worthy of recognition for their valuable contribution. I salute the initiative of Grocery Business to instigate a day of recognition for personnel working in grocery stores, food store chains and food distribution businesses.”
“The Retail Council of Canada is proud to support Grocery Heroes Day and encourage all Canadians to set a few minutes aside on July 19th to thank our grocery employees from coast to coast,” says Diane Brisebois, president and CEO of the Retail Council of Canada.
Grocery Business plans to cover the events in the next print issue and encourages participants to send photos and information about how they celebrated the day.
