Food is much more than nourishment for Dalia, who was born in Mexico City and moved to Canada 20 years ago. « Food has been very, very important since I was a kid, » she says. « It’s all about family gatherings and lots of food. All the important moments have been in the kitchen. » Recently, Dalia catered a dinner celebration for a customer who doesn’t like to cook. Afterwards, the customer sent a card and personally dropped by to thank Dalia and her team. « The customer went on to say that Dalia took exceptional care of them, let them sample the products before purchase and the level of dedication and commitment were much appreciated, » states the nomination letter. While Dalia is happy to have been recognized, she gives all the credit to her co-workers. « I love my team, » she says. « They are amazing and that’s why I have achieved a lot of things. We pull it together every day. »
