Why a career at Maple Leaf Foods?

Let our people tell you.

Mauricio in Sustainability

“One of the things that I love about working here is the fact that Maple Leaf does invest a ton in continuous learning, continuous improvement. It’s part of our DNA and you see it everywhere.”

Mauricio, Sustainability

Kate in Engineering

“I think that this “working with purpose” idea is something that really makes it possible to reconcile our work in the meat industry with a lot of thinking that’s outside of the meat industry right now. We found a really neat way to try to create shared value for both our shareholders and the community with our strategy of being the most sustainable protein company on earth.”

Kate, Engineering

Josh in Sales

“Diversity is the right thing to do from a business perspective. Hiring a diverse team is a fight against complacency. It’s a focus on different ideas, different perspectives that get you to a better end result.  There’s a bottom-line benefit. There’s a human benefit. It’s something we believe in, and it’s something that we embrace.”

Josh, Sales
