To increase consumer awareness, we launched a national Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified seafood event – the first of its kind in Canada. The two-week event was supported by the MSC, WWF and our national brand vendors – High Liner and Bento Sushi. It included in-store flyer promotions and new in-store signage and displays. While rewarding leading vendor partners, this event significantly increased both sales of MSC certified products and consumer awareness of the MSC eco-label.

Gardiner Farms near Kirkton, Ontario, has been a valued supplier to Loblaw since the start of our partnership with the Ontario Cattle Feeders' Association. Owners Joel and Sarah Gardiner and their family have raised cattle and grown corn, beans, hay and wheat for more than 60 years. As part of the Ontario Corn Fed Beef (OCFB) program, they are committed to producing high-quality beef, grown locally, in an environmentally conscious manner, and to adhering to stringent quality assurance protocols.
Using sound agronomic practices, Gardiner Farms plants, rotates and harvests its crops, making cattle feed that complies with the quality assured OCFB program. Furthermore, the cattle manure is processed through an anaerobic digester, which generates enough green electricity to power 100 homes for a year as well as producing natural fertilizer. As the Gardiners say, their farm is one of the few cattle farms in Canada that can offer Ontarians a great-tasting OFCB program steak while generating green renewable energy to charge their cell phones.

Step into a Real Canadian Superstore location in Milton or Oakville, Ontario, and you just might catch Karolina Otto conducting a grocery shopping tour, counselling individuals on appropriate nutritional choices, teaching a healthy cooking class or directing a community wellness program. A registered dietitian, Karolina worked for 20 years as a food and nutrition director and consultant at hospitals and school boards in Montreal and Toronto before joining Loblaw in 2011. Since then, she has embraced the opportunity to interact with customers and lead them on a path toward a healthier lifestyle. One of the simple recommendations she makes is to cook your own meals. According to Karolina: "Many health issues arise because people do not cook or do not know how to cook. It is never too late to learn this essential life skill."
