The Financial Post won three awards at the Society of American Business Editors and Writers Canada’s Best in Business competition at a ceremony held Wednesday evening in Toronto.
Reporter Claire Brownell won in the short features category for her story “The end of meat,” which profiled the nascent movement of food companies developing meat-like products grown from cells in a lab.
Western business columnist Claudia Cattaneo won the award for best beat reporting for her frequent and in-depth coverage of the energy sector, which in 2016 included a feature interview with the reclusive Arthur Irving, who runs the multi-billion dollar Irving Group of companies alongside his brother J.K.
Soo Locks, which allow thousands of ships to pass between Lake Superior and the lower Great Lakes (and the US and Canada) every year.
“These awards are evidence of the great range of creative, enterprising work that distinguishes the Financial Post from the competition, with innovative feature writing, exclusive interviews, stellar beat work and captivating multimedia packages,” National Post editor-in-chief Anne Marie Owens said.
