All of us have our favourites. For my colleague Victor Besa, a product development manager, it’s our tangy, delicious Great Value Adobo Cooking Sauce. It was the first adobo on the market and he says it reminds him of his roots in the Philippines.
I love Your Fresh Market strawberries, which are greenhouse-grown in Ontario. I also have a weakness for Great Value Milk Chocolate Mini Eggs. They’re so good that we sell them year-round, not just at Easter.
When the ratings for our products are high on walmart.ca, we feel confident the quality and taste satisfy customers’ needs and they’ll keep coming back — that’s when we know we have another home run.
For example, everyone loves Your Fresh Market Muffins (my favourite flavour is carrot and my son likes chocolate chip banana). The great news is they have the Ingredient Wise symbol, which means they’re made without synthetic colours, artificial flavours and sweeteners, hydrogenated vegetable oil or monosodium glutamate.
Another big hit is our Great Value Creamy Alfredo Shrimp Fettuccine Pasta Kit. It’s such an easy meal for the family and it tastes great!
It’s neat, right? We actually create the products that enter our customers’ homes. It's a really fun part of the business.
