Joe Fresh launches Everybody Bloom Pride collection

Meet Ian Metcalfe, Director of Visual Merchandising and Licensed Product at Joe Fresh. Ian is a multi-talented individual who spends his free time drawing, travelling, visiting museums, and enjoying the company of his beloved cat, Bernie. Ian's latest endeavour, The Everybody Bloom Pride Collection, carries a deeper meaning. As an openly queer colleague, Ian was thrilled to create a design that celebrates the joy, beauty, and diversity of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.

Raising the roof for cancer research

If you asked David Morello what he envisioned for the future of his Your Independent Grocer® (YIG) location in Peterborough, Ont. when he became store owner with his wife in 2000, you can bet that it wouldn’t have involved a member of the local community camping out on the store rooftop annually, for 96 hours, for 20 years.

Native plants: Giving nature a helping hand

Growing native plants is a meaningful action that helps provide essential food and habitat for wildlife. But that’s not all! Native plants have evolved in step with local conditions, so they’re easier to grow and keep healthy as well as being pretty to attract pollinators (and impress your neighbours).
