We Care Hall Of Fame

The We Care Hall of Fame Award recognizes those who have made significant contributions to the growth and development of the Foodservice and Hospitality Industry.

2021 Winner – Randy White

Randy started his foodservice career in Vancouver over 40 years ago and has led Sysco Canada as President since 2012.


His commitment to service excellence has driven the customer experience to new heights. Randy is committed to rapidly expanding diversity and inclusion across the industry and sees outstanding career opportunities in foodservice for upcoming generations of Canadians.


Randy is co-chairman of the GS1 Canada Foodservice Sector board and Current Chairman of the GS1 Canada Board of Governors. He sits on the GS1 Canada Healthcare Executive Committee, working with Federal and Provincial Governments and the Canadian Health Care sector to establish much needed supply chain and ‘new’ PPE system standards across the industry.


Sysco Canada has been a member sponsor of We Care since its inception. Since 2002, they’ve helped raise over $1.4 million for We Care through annual event participation, sponsorships, and in-office fundraisers. In recent years, Randy has grown Sysco Canada’s engagement in community initiatives focused on feeding and supporting those less fortunate.


Post-pandemic, Randy anticipates enormous opportunity for the foodservice industry as Canadians embrace life on a whole new level. The Foodservice industry will play a significant role as the world reopens and people seek to spend quality time enjoying life “together”.


Away from Sysco, Randy and his wife Michele have raised 3 sons and together enjoy an active lifestyle embracing all that the Canadian outdoors has to offer.

We Care would like to thank and congratulate Randy White on being the recipient of the 2021 We Care Hall of Fame Award.
