Our Second Sustainability Award This Year! BCFPA 2017

Posted on 08/15/2017 by Left Coast

This happened a few months ago, but better late than never… We are so proud to be recognized by the BC Food Processors Association for the fourth straight year! In addition to this proud achievement, a few months back we also received the 2017 CHFA Sustainability Award. We’re excited to be on a roll this year!

BCFPA 2017 Sustainability Award

Last year, we were nominated for three awards and went home with two: the BCFPA Leadership Award (go, Ian!) and a Product of the Year Award for our Coconut Clusters. We were happy to learn the Sustainability Award we were nominated for last year, we won this year!

Sponsored by Vancity, the BCFPA Sustainability Award recognizes a food processor who has demonstrated energy conservation and sustainability in its operations.

We’re humbled – BCFPA Awards from 2014 to 2017
