A vocal and passionate advocate for the grocery industry since joining Empire seven years ago, Michael Medline has never shied away from telling it like he sees it. As an early advocate for the Grocery Code of Conduct and a leader who’s never afraid to rebuke politicians, pundits and the media for making baseless attacks on grocers, Michael has always served as a relentless defender of our industry. Will the Code of Conduct ever be a reality? Will fairness and transparency put an end to tough negotiations? What role should governments play in the sector?

Join us for a candid conversation with one of Canada’s preeminent business leaders, Empire’s President & CEO, Michael Medline in an interview moderated by Hollie Shaw, former retail reporter for the Financial Post.
