CAN-AM Pepper Company L.P. announces new farming operations in Mexico

The Aylmer, Ontario based grower/shipper has initiated the first of their multi-step plan to increase year-round production of their core commodities.
Partnering with the “Best in Class” farming operations in Heromosillo & Culiacan on the west coast along with Eastern Mexican growing areas will provide increased quality offerings for the fall, winter and spring harvest. CAN-AM will also offer consolidation services from both our Texas and Arizona crossing facilities as well as shipping by boat from Eastern Mexico and South America.
CAN-AM will service both their processing and fresh market divisions throughout North America with the increased production. It was important for us to provide sustainability with best farming practices. Our initial investments, equipment, and operational management will secure our long term growth, says Jammie Underhill, President.
CAN-AM currently farms over 10,000 acres in Canada, and will add an additional 10,000 acres contractually, throughout the United States, Mexico and South America.
Their core items include pickles, bell peppers, specialty pepper, hard squash, avocados, pineapples, limes and watermelon.

Elgin County businesses brown bag it

In recognition of National Nutrition Month, Eat 2 Learn hosted its 5th Brown Bag Lunch event on March 8, 2017.

This year, 10 businesses participated in the event, ordering delicious, healthy lunches, with a portion of every meal purchased going to support programming at Eat 2 Learn.

Thanks to our partnership with Kathy’s Catering, 304 lunches were ordered, raising much need funds for local school nutrition programs, said Charlotte McDonald, community co-ordinator for Eat 2 Learn. That’s a lot of fruits and vegetables, bagels, cereal and milk for the students we serve.

For the second year, Great Lakes Farms provided the juicy apples included in every lunch bag.

According to organizers, support from local businesses has continued to grow each year with participation from GKN Sinter Metals, Elgin County and Central Elgin Administration Offices, St. Thomas Energy, Elgin St. Thomas Public Health, Starwood Hotels, LIBRO Credit Union, Family & Children’s Services, Can-Am Pepper Co., and West Elgin Community Health Centre.

The Brown Bag Lunch event is a fundraising event for our organization, but it also serves to expand community awareness about school nutrition Programs inner community, said McDonald. Since March is National Nutrition Month, the event also helps to promote the importance of healthy eating for both children and adults.”
