Mr. Speaker, a compassioned entrepreneur, who views success as a responsibility, describes Murad Al-Katib, president and CEO of AGT Food and Ingredients Inc., a Saskatchewan business that supplies pulse crops to more than 120 countries and has facilities on five continents.
Murad is a business owner responsible for more than 2,200 employees, including many in my home province of Saskatchewan.
Murad has been the recipient of many distinguished awards, and today Saskatchewan’s “Lentil King” is in Norway to receive yet another prestigious award. He is the first Canadian to receive the Oslo Business for Peace Award, nominated by the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce.
I congratulate Murad. He is a wonderful role model for entrepreneurs everywhere, someone of whom we are very proud.
