(Oct. 21, 3:38 p.m.) Peak of the Market, Winnipeg, Manitoba, has been named No. 44 on Food in Canada Magazine’s “Top 100 Canadian Food & Beverage Processors.”

“To be No. 44 in all of Canada is quite an accomplishment for a company out of Manitoba that sells vegetables,” said president and chief executive officer Larry McIntosh.

Food in Canada Magazine based the ranking on sales of $64.9 million for the fiscal year ending in June 2007. It was the first time the company had surpassed more than $10 million in sales, McIntosh said.

Peak of the Market represents 40 Manitoba producers who grow more than 120 different vegetable varieties.
