Read below to hear the compelling reason for Winpak’s participation in the Dragon Boat Festival every year.

“Winpak’s most important and greatest asset is our people and their families. With that in mind, we always try to focus the company’s initiatives on what impacts our employees the most. Unfortunately, cancer is something that will probably affect us all at some point in our lives.

"As part of the Corporate community, the Winpak team believes we owe it to those who have been touched by this terrible disease to do what we can be donating our time, effort, and monies to CancerCare Manitoba to further its great work in improving the lives of those affected.” - Jim Macklin, Winpak Ltd.
