SaskCanola Welcomes New Canola Promotion Manager
SaskCanola is eager to welcome a familiar face from the health and nutrition industry to our team. Lynn Weaver joined SaskCanola as the new Canola Promotion Manager, effective October 9, 2017.
“I could not be more excited to be working with the fantastic team at SaskCanola to educate and promote the use of canola oil to Canadians,” says Weaver. “It is a great honour to represent the canola farmers of Saskatchewan who bring this product to life.”
Lynn’s impressive career has seen her succeed at various positions. Over the past two years, she served as retail dietitian for Loblaw Canada Inc.; responsible for advising customers on how to simplify nutrition and make healthy eating choices. Prior to this, she’s worked as a home care dietitian, nutrition counsellor and medical marketing manager. She’s also taken on many consulting jobs over the years, including working for SaskCanola as a canola oil advocate at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Lynn holds a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition as well as a Registered Dietitian designation.
“We are very pleased that Lynn has accepted our offer to lead the canola promotion portfolio,” says Janice Tranberg, Executive Director of SaskCanola. “Lynn’s wealth of experience in nutrition communications, marketing and promotion will be a great asset in helping us promote the value of canola and its products.”
