Newsletter-JULY 2012

Happy Canada Day!!

Hi everyone,

We hope that you had a great Canada Day!! Vancouver was full of festivities, maybe you got out to enjoy the parade during the day or jumped on a boat or reserved a spot on the grass in Coal Harbour in the evening to watch the fireworks light up the sky. We watched Spain win the Euro cup in style, 4-0!!! Spain has now won the Euro cup twice and the world cup, must be something the food!!!

Our olives have become increasingly popular over the last month. Some of our existing clients, such as, Niagra GroceryNourish MarketThe Market on YatesJenny's Fine Foods, and Little Town Market have started carrying our olives along of some of the next new clients.
