NatureFresh Farms Celebrates 20 Years and Announces New Employee Benefit
LEAMINGTON, ON - NatureFresh Farms’ 20-year anniversary celebration brought about more than just confetti and champagne pops earlier this month. On November 8th, the company threw an anniversary event that marked this major milestone, along with the announcement of an exciting addition of a Group Retirement Plan to its existing benefits plan.
“The 20th anniversary celebration gave us the perfect opportunity to express our appreciation to our employees by announcing the extension of their current benefits plan, which now includes the Group Retirement Plan,” shared John Ketler, General Manager. “NatureFresh Farms’ most valuable asset is its employees, and we want to help provide for our amazing team.”
The special event was organized at NatureFresh’s Phase 3 facility where 270 employees gathered to commemorate the company’s 20 years of success. With everyone in high spirits and enjoying the afternoon event, Ketler and CEO Peter Quiring took the opportunity to extend their gratitude to the employees. Noting their hard work and dedication over the last 20 years in business, the two announced that NatureFresh Farms will now be offering its employees a Group Retirement Plan.
The Group Retirement Plan allows employees to conveniently contribute to the plan through payroll deductions before tax is calculated. The amount is then matched by NatureFresh Farms, allowing employees to save more for their retirement and receive immediate tax relief from those savings. The company hopes this new benefit will help existing employees plan for their future, while also acting as an incentive to attract new hires.
Within its 20 years of innovation and growth, NatureFresh Farms has had many accomplishments, according to a press release. It recently rolled out a 32-acre expansion, which brought its total family-owned facilities to 200 acres, advancing operations to year-round growing in Leamington. NatureFresh has taken significant steps to further integrate sustainability within its operations, exemplified this year by the successful introduction of its new compostable cucumber trays.
NatureFresh Farms aims to continue providing quality greenhouse-grown vegetables through its advancements in sustainable technology, and is looking forward to another 20 years of offering retailers and consumers consistency in supply, quality, and flavor.
