JEFO NAMED ONE OF CANADA’S BEST MANAGED COMPANIES

 

March 9, 2016 – Jefo was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

 

“BEST MANAGED COMPANIES EMBRACE INNOVATION, SEIZE OPPORTUNITIES AND INSPIRE TALENT. THEY REALLY SET THE BAR HIGH,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program

From the beginning, Jefo has concentrated on innovation – understanding and contributing to the science, economics and practices of livestock production and management. Today, Jefo is a world leader and global partner in the field of feed additives, with its pioneering, cost-saving and efficient solutions, that also promote sustainable development.

 

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout organization, and talent.

 

This recognition could not have come at a better time for Jefo. We have just launched our new corporate philosophy “Life, made easier” which reflects our strong commitment to our clients for quality services and solutions. Being named One of Canada’s Best Managed Company only confirms that all the efforts, hard work and risk-taking invested so far in this adventure paid off. I am very proud and want to thank all of those who contributed to Jefo’s success. I sincerely believe that the best is yet to come!" Jean Fontaine, president and founder of Jefo

 

2015 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with Requalified, Gold Standard, Gold Requalified winners and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 12, 2016. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
