October 17, 2011, Mississauga, ON – Mom's Best Gourmet Foods Canada president and CEO Rae Lindsay has been named one of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs for 2011 by Profit Magazine.

The company specializes in manufacturing biscotti and other specialty baked items. In addition, to marketing products under the Mom’s Best brand, the company also produces baked goods for a variety of private label brands for customers across Canada, U.S.A. and Mexico, and is exploring opportunities in the Middle East and South America.

Lindsay and her sister, Angela Pettigrew, founded the company in 1995 out of Lindsay’s home kitchen. Both sisters were single moms with small children and huge debts.

“It’s been a struggle,” said Lindsay, “But we have been very fortunate in meeting so many supportive people along the way; from buyers to suppliers to end consumers. They believed in us and our products.”


Lindsay credits her company’s success to the hard work and support of the many dedicated people who work at Mom’s Best, and the loyal consumers who continue to enjoy their delicious products.

“It hasn’t been easy,” affirmed Lindsay, "But, like I tell my children: nothing worth having, ever is.”

The rankings, published in the Nov. 2011 issue of the magazine, rank Lindsay at 39.
