CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA — GrainsConnect Canada (GCC) was recognized on May 12 for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. GCC also earned the designation in 2021, one of only four new recipients in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan that year.

“We are proud to be back as a Best Managed company,” said Warren Stow, president of GCC. “The award is further testimony and validation of GCC’s business model and approach.

“Most importantly, earning the Best Managed designation is a reflection of the hard work and talent of our team.”

The 2022 Best Managed program award winners are among the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $50 million. These companies demonstrate leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment and financials to achieve sustainable growth.

“We work to put people at the core of our strategy,” Stow said. “People create the GCC culture and with the right tools, great things happen.”

Stow said the past year has been difficult for all stakeholders in the agriculture industry.

“Drought conditions and challenges across the family farm and through our supply chain have created setbacks in the industry,” Stow said. “Our people have worked diligently to ensure we are doing right by our partnerships.”

GrainsConnect Canada operates four inland storage terminals in Huxley and Vegreville, Alberta, and Maymont and Reford, Saskatchewan. GCC is also a co-owner of the Fraser Grain Terminal in Vancouver, British Columbia. The company was founded in 2016.
