HyLife of La Broquerie has been named Outstanding Large Business of the Year by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce at a ceremony Thursday night in Winnipeg.
“It was surprising and very exciting,” explains HyLife’s President Don Janzen. “We’ve been involved in other things like this, but have never received a business award of this nature.”
The Chambers noted HyLife’s key to success is its ability to turn challenges into opportunities with a dedicated, determined and innovative management team.
“I think there have been a lot of challenges, but with those challenges come opportunities.”
“I think we have an excellent management team that really sees these opportunities and are highly motivated to get these things done that are sitting in front of us.” – Don Janzen on how his team has overcome the ups and downs of the hog market.
HyLife started in 1994 with headquarters in La Broquerie. It also has operations across southern and western Manitoba and a plant in Neepawa. HyLife is a vertically integrated pork production operation that has expanded from commercial production to being fully integrated from farm to fork with 1,500 employees.
