A great place for career growth.
Management is very professional and caring to its employee. Workplace is fairly safe but the hardest part of the job is staying late to complete the order. Quality of product is well within Industry standard as production and quality assurance work together as a team.

Excellent place to work and grow according to your ability, skills, smartness, education and hardworking
I am a present employee of Giraffe foods and Beverages, Mississauga. Let me be honest to review Giraffe foods, undoubtedly its a excellent place to work, your co worker get along with you easily, supportive co workers, routine work days are normal to work not hardened unlikely other places , yes its fast pace work environment but you get help when you have to go beyond your limits, Supervisor and Manager’s are easy going, they appreciate your work and give thumbs up with gift card, Management is so powerful at Giraffe foods, they very well managed the Company, about two years ago Giraffe foods awarded for “Canadas best managed company”. Workplace culture is enjoyable,nice and good. Company pay is good, they never forget your birthday and send a birthday wishes with gift card , they awards you for your hard work, pays Christmas bonus, paid vacation days as well as three personal paid days,annual family gathering summer party, separates employees holiday luncheon,and many many more advantages and benefits. Owner of the company and VP is down to earth. You get a chance to meet them during annual bbq gathering and they treat you very well. Due to my job nature I have to often communicate with QC people for samples delivery,shippers, receivers, supervisors, managers,accounting department all of people’s have good work ethics and professionalism. If you want to learn and grow then this company is best for you.

Great divide
Communication was very minimal, the company hires people that don’t communicate well, I didn’t understand anything that they say because people were eating their english words and could not even create a comprehensible sentence.

As for the packaging area itself, it was a very toxic environment and people are going to sabotage you if you at of the same ethnicity as them. The area was always dirty, the QA department were not following proper PPEs (one was showing chest hair), it’s surprising that a company that handles food is even this dir

Growing company, fast-paced
I currently work at Giraffe and think it's a good working environment. I am friendly with my coworkers, so that helps on the really busy days. Some days are easier than others to do this, but overall, it's a good place to work. The company is growing and improving, and the managers are open to suggestions.
Pros
Good salary
Cons

Poor environment
Depending on what team you work for this place can be either hit or miss. During my time here an entire team left. Some people left and had no jobs to go too but were just tired of the day to day stress. While every job comes with stress this one in particular made life miserable. The systems in place are very dated which make it difficult to finish and effectively track work accurately. What makes it worse is the clique like mentality that this workplace holds. Its a dog eat dog world unless you are in with the clique. Managers listen and react to gossip as well as partake in it. Coming to work hoping to do your utmost best is everyone's goal however in such a childish environment its impossible. Several employees here are very unhappy with where they are career/personal life wise..this takes a toll on any what they bring to work each day. Hopefully with the new owners being from a clear professional background they will clean this place up.
Pros
Good location
Cons
Unhappy unhealthywork environment

Not for everyone
Very fast paced environment and rapidly growing. There are many things to be learned which is great but instead of increasing the head count the work will be stacked until you do not care about your deadlines anymore.
The owners need to realize that they are no longer a small company. The biggest issue that they are somehow blind about is that they do not have structured human resourcing. HR needs a boost as there is zero flexibility, no care for employee culture, and no job analysis whatsoever which leads to workload imbalances. Many of the managers do not have adequate experience to be in their position, but have stepped up there as they have gained trust. This needs to change; you cannot just give someone a higher role because you like them, PLEASE have their skills fully analyzed and make sure they are qualified to be in the position by a human resources personnel (this means you need more people in HR and stop outsourcing the work). If you need the money, accounting needs to step up their game and work together with other departments as there are many holes where they are losing their money. Sales also needs to stop wasting internal resources on less important projects.
Pros
Nice people, good learning experience, hours
