Goodfood hiring more than 500 new employees

COVID-19 Online First

MONTREAL — The global COVID-19 pandemic is not not ALL bad news. Goodfood Market Corp., a leading online grocery company in Canada, announced today its plan to hire more than 500 employees in the coming weeks to support growing operations and ensure the fulfilment of current and future orders across Canada.

While this will not mean job opportunities in Nova Scotia, there are openings in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver.

“We continue playing our part in helping our country get through the current crisis. Goodfood and its employees have always been motivated by the idea of having a positive societal impact for the hundreds of thousands of families we serve nationwide. Although difficult for everyone, the latest events provide us with an opportunity to step up and make a difference,” said Jonathan Ferrari, CEO.

“With the recent opening of our fulfilment centre in Vancouver and our increased presence coast-to-coast, we are looking to bolster our teams across all functions at our facilities in Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver,” added Neil Cuggy, president and COO. “The health of our workers is our highest priority. In addition to our already rigorous food safety standards, we have implemented enhanced hygiene procedures including social distancing and additional cleaning and sanitation across our fulfilment centers to ensure a safe working environment. In these challenging circumstances, we are also proud to provide employment opportunities to Canadians who have recently lost their jobs and to all those seeking employment.”
