Our family to the north has also been having a great 2019. Currently, the pound plan for 2019 is 50 percent higher than our 2018 plan. Dot Foods Canada is now selling to all top-tier, Canadian distributors.
General Manager of Canada Tim Loyd wanted to call out the impact of having our own drivers delivering our product in Canada now.
“We always appreciate our drivers, but you appreciate them even more when you don’t have access to those blue trucks,” said Loyd.
We have hired three drivers in Canada since January 1.
“I’m most excited to see our team go from struggling to handle the big influx of volume we had last summer to really managing the business this summer. I’m also very excited to see more new employees being able to achieve their personal career goals while working at Dot,” said Loyd.
We would also like to congratulate the following employees:
- Marc Palma (Alberta) was promoted from Warehouse Lead to Warehouse Supervisor
- Shane Verkland (Alberta) was promoted from a Warehouse Order Selector to a Warehouse Trainer
- Rafael Briceno (Alberta) was promoted from a Warehouse Order Selector to a Warehouse Lead
- Daimion Cunningham (Ontario) was promoted from a Warehouse Order Selector to a Warehouse Lead
In addition to the above promotions, we have hired Michael Mensah to be our Warehouse Lead at our Ontario DC.
Thank you for being part of the Dot Foods team! You are the key to our success.
