Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods welcomes Clarence Shwaluk as director of farm operations. Mr. Shwaluk will be responsible for all supply chain activities related to hemp production and will be tasked with building a world-class agrarian-based team to fulfill Manitoba Harvest’s strategic objectives.
“We are excited to add Clarence’s skill and experience to our rapidly growing and dynamic team,” explained Eric LaFlamme, vice president of operations for Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods. “Clarence’s insight into the Canadian agribusiness marketplace will be a huge asset to us and to our producer partners.”
Most recently, Shwaluk was director of operations administration services with Masterfeeds LP, a Canadian division of Ridley Inc., where he undertook the challenge of directing marketing, formulations, purchasing and pricing functions for the Canadian feed division with sales of up to $140 million.
Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods continues to grow at an incredible annualized growth rate of over 50 percent per year. To ensure that it continues to offer the highest possible customer service experience to its retail partners, the company continues to build out its Operations team. To that end, Anne Hogue has recently been added as purchasing manager, overseeing purchasing, receiving and inventory and Christie DaSilva is now responsible for managing all internal material handling activities that support the master schedule for which she is already responsible.
Celebrating its 15th year in business, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods is the world’s largest hemp food manufacturer to grow, make and sell its own brand of hemp food products. Manitoba Harvest is proud to offer award-winning products like Hemp Hearts (raw shelled hemp seeds) and HEMP PRO 70 ® (hemp protein concentrate).
