From the Sea to Your Supper Table

In the twenty-first century, we take for granted the privilege of visiting a modern supermarket to purchase any seafood, meats, fruits, or fresh vegetables – food originating hundreds or perhaps thousands of kilometres away, all delivered ready for our consumption. We hardly spare a thought for the thousands of professionals managing the delicate and relentless industry of perishable goods transportation. But companies like Vancouver-based Flying Fresh Air Freight, under founder and CEO Brendan Harnett, ensure we can enjoy our lobsters and pineapple anytime, anywhere.

Economic Opportunity Paired with Natural Beauty

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northeast Mississippi, lies the small city of Corinth and Alcorn County. On an early Friday evening, while citizens of Corinth are getting ready to go out to a local ball game or one of the many restaurants and live music venues in town, Clayton Stanley and his team are watching the last of the trucks depart from a 200-acre tract of land they purchased in 2013. After a lot of hard work, 40 acres are now “pad ready” for a major industrial manufacturer.

Woman-Owned Businesses

In the U.S., more than 9.1 million firms, mainly small-to-medium enterprises, are owned by women. They generate $1.4 million in sales and employ nearly 7.9 million people, according to the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). Canada is keeping pace, as research cited by Susan Ward in ‘Statistics on Canadian Women in Business’ indicates that the country “is a global leader in women’s entrepreneurship, with participation of Canadian women business owners comparable to those in the United States.” But it has not always been this way, nor has it been easy.
