Montreal, Que. – Goodfood Market Corp., an online grocery company in Canada, has opened a fulfillment centre in Vancouver, further expanding its countrywide operating footprint.
Production at the facility was launched recently with the first boxes already delivered to subscribers’ homes. The manufacturing and distribution capabilities of the facility will continue to ramp up over the coming weeks.
“We continue to put our customers at the centre of everything we do, and the opening of our Vancouver facility will go a long way in being closer to our members and ensuring added flexibility and quality to the service we offer,” Jonathan Ferrari, chief executive officer of Goodfood, said in a press release.
“British Columbia and Western Canada have been very important growth vectors for Goodfood. We continue to see strong uptake in the region and, along with our partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, this is an important step in cementing our foothold as a leader in online grocery and home meal solutions in the community. Our presence in the Greater Vancouver will also contribute to a reduction in our environmental footprint and to an improvement in gross margin when the facility is fully ramped up.”
Goodfood delivers meal solutions and grocery items that make it easy for members from coast to coast to enjoy meals at home every week. The company has its main production facility and administrative offices in Montreal, Que., production facilities in Calgary, Alta., and Vancouver, B.C., and a breakfast facility in Montreal. Goodfood has 246,000 active subscribers.
