The interns met with Alain Brandon – Vice President, Government Relations and Corporate Social Responsibility at Loblaw Companies Limited at the home of their fashion brand and retail chain – Joe Fresh.
As Canada’s largest food distributor, we learned how closely government policy affects operations. Additionally, we learned that the company has an immensely large presence in the grocery, drug and general retail market. We want to thank Mr. Brandon for meeting with the OLIP interns each year. Our candid conversation was incredibly insightful and we left feeling much more knowledgeable about the operations of Loblaws and government relations in general.
In addition to our lovely chat, we were so excited to have a sneak peak of the new spring Joe Fresh line and were also able to take home some infamous Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies. Thank you Loblaws for continually supporting the OLIP program!
