Rabba Fine Foods wins top grocery industry award for sustainability initiative

The Canadian Grocer Impact Awards recognizes Canadian grocers working to create a greener industry

Mississauga, August 17, 2022—Rabba Fine Foods, the GTA’s well-known 24/7 neighbourhood market, has won a Canadian Grocer Impact Award for the third consecutive year. Rabba’s 2023 award is in the sustainability category, highlighting significant contributions to a more environmentally friendly grocery industry. 

The Canadian Grocer Impact Awards highlight outstanding contributions from Canadian grocers and initiatives they have introduced and implemented within the Canadian grocery industry. Rabba’s contribution was its initiative to install solar panels at its distribution centre, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of its grocery network. 

“Making an impact on the communities we serve and on the greater grocery industry is vital for Rabba Fine Foods,” said Rick Rabba, president of Rabba Fine Foods. “The use of solar energy at Rabba Fine Foods will help pave the road to a greener future.”

The approximately 2,600 solar panels generate more than 1.5 million kWh of electricity annually, thereby offsetting the vast majority of the electricity requirements for Rabba’s Mississauga distribution facilities.
