Mastronardi Produce President and CEO Paul Mastronardi has been named Ontario’s 2013 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year; Food & Beverage Category Winner.

Entrepreneur Of The Year celebrates the contribution and spirit of entrepreneurs everywhere. The Canadian program is in its 20th year of honoring the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs from all areas of business.

“I’m extremely honored to be selected as EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Food & Beverage Category Winner,” said Paul Mastronardi. “This is a fantastic network of business-oriented individuals who support each other and share ideas and inspiration and I’m proud to be a part of that.”

Today, as the fourth generation President of Mastronardi Produce Ltd., he leads his team in innovative business practices to bring flavorful greenhouse produce to consumers across the world.

Last year’s winners, Steamwhistle Brewery Presidents Greg Taylor & Cam Heaps were on hand to present the award to Paul in their fun, entertaining style.

"Entrepreneurs like Paul Mastronardi turn us on - to new ideas; new ways of thinking and new possibilities," stated Colleen McMorrow, National & Ontario EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Director.
