Fruiticana is pick of B.C. bunch

One of Surrey’s best-known South Asian food grocery store chains has won a prestigious prize at the Small Business B.C. Awards (SBBC).

Fruiticana picked up the awards’ inaugural Premier’s People’s Choice title after amassing the most public online votes out of 417 nominated companies across the province.

The award for the Surrey-based business, which boasts 19 stores throughout B.C. and Alberta, was, a sweet success for Fruiticana President and Founder Tony Singh.

Singh – who started Fruiticana in 1994 – said he was particularly proud of this latest award because the winner was chosen by the people.

Fruiticana Produce Ltd. has arrangements with more than 30 farms in B.C., the U.S., Mexico and India, all of which exclusively grow produce for the company.

“Our whole idea is to help preserve the Asian culture, but to be Canadian first,” said Singh.

Fruiticana has won numerous accolades and awards for business excellence over the years.
