Monsanto Canada Recognized in Annual Maclean's Survey of Top 100 Canadian Employers

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2007) - Monsanto Canada has been selected as one of Canada's "Top 100 Employers" by Maclean's magazine in its annual survey of Canadian businesses. The Maclean's listing was released in a special edition of the magazine dated Oct. 15, 2007 that hit news stands today.

Canada's Top 100 Employers designation recognizes the Canadian employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. The MacLean's listing ranks employers based on a nation-wide survey, an application process and analysis of compensation levels, work/life balance, training opportunities, workplace facilities and company benefits. Considered the most in-depth analysis of human resource trends in Canada's private and public sectors, the top businesses were selected after a 12-month review and investigation of over 1,800 applicant companies.

"This is the first time Monsanto has participated in the Maclean's process and clearly, we are pleased to be recognized in this way," said Sean Gardner, vice-president and general manager of Monsanto Canada. "One of our Monsanto Pledge principles is to create a great place to work. This recognition confirms we are doing the right things to attract top talent, motivate and develop our people, service our customers and create a positive atmosphere where our people and our company can succeed."

In addition to the recognition offered by MacLean's magazine, the Winnipeg Free Press will also recognize Monsanto Canada in its special tabloid supplement that will recognize the Top 15 Manitoba companies featured in the MacLean's Top 100 Employers.
