About the honourees

The Perry family are fourth-generation farmers (1909) in Chin, Alberta who currently own and operate the award-winning, 5,280-acre Perry Family Farm.

They primarily grow potatoes and are a major supplier for brands such as Frito-Lay, McCain and Bonduel. They were recently named McCain’s “Top Potato Grower” and have been a Top 10 finalist for this consideration for the last nine years. In 2008, they were named Frito Lay’s Canadian Supplier of the year.

The Perry’s are leaders in data-driven and sustainable agriculture. They were McCain Foods Canada National Environmental Award Winner in 2011. In 2013, they designed and constructed the GrowTEC Biogas Plant, which produces over 4,000 MWh of renewable electricity per year from manure and organic waste - enough energy to power 1,000 homes. They have spoken at the Paris Accord and Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue about their sustainable agriculture practices.

The Dhillon School of Business is pleased to honour the Perry family’s commitment to sustainability in business and dedication to environmental stewardship.
