Paul Mastronardi named Ontario’s Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year
Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates the contribution and spirit of entrepreneurs everywhere. The Canadian program is in its 20th year of honoring the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business.
“I’m extremely honored to be selected as EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Food & Beverage Category Winner,” said Paul Mastronardi. “This is a fantastic network of business-oriented individuals who support each other and share ideas and inspiration and I’m proud to be a part of that.”
Paul’s passion for flavor led him to search the world for great tasting tomatoes back in 1995. He then pioneered the concept of branding and packaging tomatoes in North America. Today, as the fourth generation President of Mastronardi Produce Ltd., he leads his team in innovative business practices to bring flavorful greenhouse produce to consumers across the world.
Last year’s winners, Steamwhistle Brewery Presidents Greg Taylor & Cam Heaps were on hand to present the award to Paul in their fun, entertaining style.
"Entrepreneurs like Paul Mastronardi turn us on - to new ideas; new ways of thinking and new possibilities," stated Colleen McMorrow, National & Ontario EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Director. "We've been celebrating entrepreneurs for 20 years in Canada, and we’re very proud to shine the spotlight on Paul Mastronardi of Mastronardi Produce Ltd. as the Food &Beverage Category Winner of Ontario’s 2013 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year,” said McMorrow.
