“I feel like I have a second Family working for Gay Lea Foods! I take pride in my job because I am a producer member and an employee member which means I own a piece of this co-operative. It feels good to have a voice at Gay Lea Foods.”
"When people go to work, they shouldn't have to leave their hearts at home.’ I love this quote, and promised myself that I would only ever be involved with organizations that felt the same. Having already worked in the co-operative sector, I was well aware of GLF's stellar reputation for balancing profitability and progress with a concern for people and the planet...however, it wasn't until joining the company that I fully understood the extent to which this concern for community, its members and staff is entrenched in its culture. GLF is an organization that truly lives the co-operative principles; that prides itself on putting what's right before what sells; and I couldn't be more proud to work for a company built on this foundation, and that lives this everyday.”
“With my Dairy academic background, and in pursuing my career as a dairy professional, I found GLF to be my distinctive place that enhanced my skills & knowledge through opportunities and challenges. Above all, I enjoy working at GLF for its co-operative values, pride in its diversity and for taking up its social responsibility.”
“Gay Lea Foods stands alone in its co-operative culture. I was initially drawn to it due to the amount they give back to communities, both locally and internationally. During my time here I have come to realize that being part of this organization is more than just a job, it changes your outlook. The relationships, co-operative spirit and skill sets I have developed in my time here are irreplaceable. Gay Lea Foods is a place of limitless opportunities for those who seek them out and want to be part of something bigger.”
