Jean-Francois Delmore, Loblaws’ senior category manager for the chain’s Cambridge, Ontario, buying office, lauded Florida’s shippers.
“Canada is a big country,” he said. “It takes a good group of vendors. We work with a tremendous group that is dedicated and passionate about their jobs. They’re willing to put their names behind their boxes. As a retailer, that means a lot. It means vendors are not afraid to share the risk and responsibilities we have in putting the products on the shelf.”
