Partner Blog: Loblaws
For our first site visit of 2023, we commuted to Loblaws Dundas Street to better understand the company’s priorities, support of local produce and how its government affairs team operates.
As Canada’s largest food distributor, Loblaws is striving to provide better opportunities for local products to compete in the market. We toured around the store and explored its micro fulfillment centre (MFC). Simply put, an MFC places small-scale warehouse facilities in densely populated urban locations closer to the consumer to improve delivery times. This innovative strategy provides retailers with a tool to process more orders and accelerate delivery. We also learned about Loblaws’ commitment to promoting high food security and its numerous initiatives to give back to the community.
We would like to thank Tahiya and Bruno for their warm welcome, insights and support of OLIP!
