 Price, Stanley Allan - 2002 Hall of Fame Inductee
Operating from Acme, Alberta, Stan Price exhibited a lifelong commitment to family values, improving industry standards, building communities, and the vertical integration of food production from farm through to consumer. Stan pioneered the development on modern hog production practices with its emphasis on superior genetics, innovations in breeding, the need for national grading standards and the need for value-added processing. This dedication led to Stan becoming founding president of the Canadian Pork Council, one of the founders of Pig Improvement Canada, a key to the establishment of Fletcher's Fine Foods in Alberta, and the building of an integrated family food company known as Sunterra. Sunterra Enterprises reflect high standards in the production of pork and beef, processing them for export and domestic markets through Trochu Meats, and a domestic retailing chain called Sunterra Markets complete with customized catering services. A Price family member leads each arm of Sunterra Enterprises.

Stan Price had extensively supported his local community in education, sports, business development and youth activities. Stan, his wife Florence, and seven children have provided a new definition to the enterprise known as the family farm
