In June, the Retail Council of Canada (RCC) launches the Canadian Grand Prix Lifetime Achievement Award and will present the award to Paul Higgins Jr. and Michael Higgins, the Co-c.e.o.s of Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee.
The award recognizes senior executive(s) who have demonstrated outstanding service and commitment to the Canadian grocery industry. Those considered for it have shown a commitment to innovation in the products their company offers to consumers and the leadership they provide within their organization.
The Higgins’ brothers guided expansion of the Mother Parker brands and private label offerings into many of North America's largest grocery and restaurant chains. Most recently, Mother Parkers introduced breakthrough innovation with the launch of RealCup single-serve capsules and the EcoCup recyclable capsule.
Diane J. Brisebois, president and c.e.o, Retail Council of Canada said, "Over the course of their careers Paul and Michael have pushed the envelope to drive sustainable growth, champion innovation and exceed customer expectation, earning the respect of their peers and industry partners every step of the way. Paul and Michael Higgins are true innovators and their willingness to embrace change has cemented Mother Parkers as an internationally recognized industry leader."
