During 2012, Maple Leaf Foods continued to execute a comprehensive strategy to achieve significant earnings improvement and sustainable growth by increasing scale and productivity, simplifying its product portfolio and launching exciting new products. We can look back at a year of executing relentlessly against this plan, which will be largely complete by the end of 2014.

Maple Leaf Foods continues to be guided by strongly held corporate values and the determination to be a best-in-class, highly profitable consumer packaged foods company.
