Maple Leaf is launching an external company blog today at http://blog.mapleleaf.com. The first posting, “The Journey to Food Safety Leadership”, is a letter written by President and CEO, Michael McCain and the blog will also feature posts from other leaders at the Company going forward.
Maple Leaf Foods has had significant dialogue with Canadians since the recall and listeriosis outbreak of August 2008 and we want to maintain a direct and candid conversation with interested Canadians. Food safety will be increasingly in the news and is a matter of high interest and importance to everyone. On the blog, Maple Leaf will provide updates on the Company’s progress towards food safety leadership, address questions and topics related to Listeria management and other food safety concerns and respond to events as they happen.
