Many companies would celebrate a 75th anniversary with a party or cake. Not Canfor. They might have been around for 75 years, but as a company that has always looked to the future, they’re shaking up tradition.
Canfor has created a signature cocktail series to celebrate this occasion in style. Each cocktail is infused with the pride of Canfor’s corporate history – honouring the company’s leaders, milestones and the BC’s forest industry.
