A core group of current Discovery Organics employees who wanted to maintain and foster the mission that Discovery Organics began 23 years ago, purchased a majority share of Discovery Organics from the founders Annie Moss and Randy Hooper. The new ownership group was put in place July 1, 2021.
Discovery Organics is a certified organic fresh produce wholesaler based in Vancouver BC with warehouses in Vancouver BC and Calgary AB. Discovery services Western Canadian retailers, restaurants, processors and buying groups 364 days a year.
A true labour of love for previous owners Annie Moss and her husband Randy Hooper, Discovery Organics began in 1998 with a mission to help develop markets for local organic farmers. That mission continues today with a strong understanding of food systems and the interconnected nature of the food industry and the importance of relationships from farm to table.
The business has grown to source directly from certified organic farms, ranches, and orchards within the Western Hemisphere, preferably with a strong connection to the Fair Trade movement.
The new ownership group includes:
Stefan Misse – President
Viviana Marino- Financial Controller
Damien Bryan – VP Business Development
Newry Lee- Customs and Logistics Manager
Brody Irvine- Senior Purchasing Manager
Truth. Trust. Transparency. Relationships.
