Deerview Meats owners share MHC Business Person of the Year award

By Medicine Hat News on March 6, 2017.

Medicine Hat College has doubled up on its annual Business Person of the Year award.

For the first time ever the award becomes the Business Person(s) of the Year award. Perry and Chris Deering have been selected as the 2017 winners.

The owners of Deerview Meats, Perry and Chris have “demonstrated strong leadership within their business, growing it from a home-based deer meat producer to one of the highest ranked meat processing facilities in the province,” states a release from MHC announcing the news. Deerview Meats stood out for their impact both locally and nationally, dedication to the industry and commitment to community initiatives.

Deerview Meats is now a preferred processor of many types of locally raised meat, many of which end up getting sold in their retail store. They have pioneered new standards for meat processing.

“We have strong roots of entrepreneurship in our families,” said Chris. “We call rural Alberta our home and represent the small town business owner… we jokingly call ourselves ‘redneck’ entrepreneurs.”

The award will be presented March 30 at the Medicine Hat Lodge at the Connecting Students to Business event.

Area businesses can buy tickets or tables to the dinner for $60 each. Students receive a subsidized rate of $20.
