Mississauga, April 14, 2022 – Rabba Fine Foods delivers 5,400 eggs to The Mississauga Food bank as part of its Rabba Roots Community Giving program, thanks to the generous support of Burnbrae Farms, the grocer’s trusted purveyor of poultry eggs. Business partners since 1968, the two Ontario-based, family companies share a deep-rooted commitment to local communities.
“Our success is rooted at the community, neighbourhood level,” said Rima Rabba, Director of Marketing, Rabba Fine Foods. “It’s a real joy for us to work with partners like Burnbrae who do everything in their power to support our community partners and those in need.”
