The Rural Entrepreneur: John Bragg

The Force Behind Oxford Frozen Foods and Eastlink

  Author:   Donald J. Savoie    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

The long-awaited story of Maritime entrepreneur from bestselling, award-winning author of “Thanks for the Business“.

Oxford, Nova Scotia – population 1,190 – doesn’t spring to mind as a place to start or grow a business with a global reach. But don’t tell that to John Bragg. From humble beginnings, this deeply committed Maritimer has grown Oxford Frozen Foods into the world leader in harvesting, processing, and marketing wild blueberries.
He’s done the same with Eastlink Communications, which he launched as a modest cable television operation in a small Nova Scotia town; through acquisitions it has become the largest private cable company in Canada.
Bragg has all the instincts of an astute entrepreneur, and he brings these talents to all things, including his deep understanding of the challenges confronting rural Canada, where he is a true champion of rural development.
As told by award-winning author Donald J. Savoie, and featuring a dozen photos from Bragg’s personal archive, The Rural Entrepreneur: John Bragg is the story of a tremendous business success born and grown in the Maritimes – one that is sure to inspire the next generation of Maritime entrepreneurs.
