Lino Saputo, entrepreneur : Living Our Dreams
Lino Saputo’s life story is both extraordinary and profoundly inspiring. It is the tale of a young immigrant who, though only a teenager, set about building a world where his father and his loved ones could once again thrive in dignity and devote themselves to their art. Through hard work and tenacity, spurred on by dreams of a better future, this young man went on to become one of Canada’s most notable entrepreneurs, the leader of a multinational that numbers among the world’s largest dairy processing companies and a recipient of the most prestigious individual honours awarded by his adopted country. How did he do it? Through this story of love, risk, new horizons, and—ultimately—legacy, we come to know the simple, reserved man who, in pursuing his dreams, accomplished exceptional feats.
