Peter Joe is the CEO of Sunrise Soya Foods and has served on the Strathcona BIA Board of Directors since 2011. His parents, Leslie and Susan Joe, established the company in 1956. He began helping his parents at an early age, and since then has dedicated his work to support the family business. By 1984, Peter’s role became full-time management.
Over the years, Peter has accomplished notable success for the company including expanding distribution, as well as opening manufacturing facilities in Vancouver, Toronto and Delta.

Whether it’s producing quality products or valuing the people of his company, Peter believes that everything at Sunrise should be handled with care – just like the delicate nature of tofu.
