Ontario’s Mucci Farms honored for investments, addition

The Leamington, Ontario Chamber of Commerce has awarded Mucci Farms with the top honor in the Industrial/Manufacturing Excellence category at its annual Business Excellence Awards held Oct. 11, 2017.

Mucci recently completed an addition to their strawberry farm, and continue to make substantial investments in state-of-the-art robotics and technology across their footprint which totals over 200 acres, according to a news release from Mucci.

In 2016, Mucci Farms won a Business Excellence Award for Investing in a World Class Workforce, an award that highlighted their success in training and developing their workforce.

“We are really grateful to the chamber for recognizing us for a second year in a row,” said Bert Mucci, CEO of Mucci Farms.  “To win in two different categories is especially exciting because it tells us that we are succeeding in multiple areas.

Investing in a passionate team and always having an innovative spirit are two areas we have identified as cornerstone pillars of our company.”

The award was sponsored by the Windsor Essex Economic Development Corporation. The Industrial/Manufacturing Excellence award was given to the company who best exemplified a commitment to product development and quality, expanding the market base, environmental commitment, progressive human resource policies and skills development.

Mucci Farms is a greenhouse vegetable grower, packer, shipper and marketer committed to quality, food safety and the needs of the consumer market. The company has grown vegetables since the 1960s.
