The 2016 results are in for the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, and for the 10th consecutive year Vancouver Island grocer Quality Foods has been selected to retain its prestigious accreditation as a Best Managed Platinum member.

“We’re thrilled,” said Ken Schley, QF’s director of operations and founding partner. “Platinum membership means we are continuing to adapt and grow in changing environments, and that we have been able to stay in pretty good company for an extended period of time. We’re proud of this designation and we know that being recognized in this way means a lot to all of our QF people and to our customers.”

Best Managed, one of the nation’s elite business awards programs, has recognized world-class Canadian businesses since 1993.
