Grocery Business is celebrating our industry heroes with a Heroes Day on July 19, 2021.
The Grocery Business team want to recognize the ongoing efforts of people throughout the industry who continue to maintain the flow of products, ensure shelves are stocked and keep Canadians fed.
To help organize the initiative, industry veteran Bill Ivany has joined the Grocery Business team as the Grocery Heroes Day ambassador.
“When Grocery Business came up with the idea of the “Thank You Grocery Business Heroes” issue last year, it received an outpouring of support from retailers and suppliers. A year later and the pandemic continues to impact the lives of everyone, particularly those on the frontline. We thought it was important to acknowledge that people in this industry have not stopped being heroes. So, on July 19, we hope that retailers and vendors will come together to recognize our Grocery Heroes,” says Ivany.
The initiative is designed to recognize people within the entire industry, from manufacturing and logistics to retail and vendor head office and in-store personnel. Industry members can participate on July 19 and recognize the grocery workforce. Grocery Business will commemorate Grocery Heroes Day in the July/August 2021 issue and showcase industry celebrations in the September/October 2021 issue.
