Jim Love Packaging Pioneer

If you've ever enjoyed a can of craft beer, there's a local Calgary business to thank for that: Cask Brewing Systems Inc. They invented micro-canning, and they're supporting brewers worldwide. So what does it take to run a global business from right here in YYC? Meet Jim Love.

Co-owner and Vice President | Cask Brewing Systems Inc.

Jim Love is a native Calgarian who earned a BA (Econ) from the University of Calgary and began his career focused on federal-provincial fiscal relations as an economist in the Treasury Department of the Alberta Government. But the call of the entrepreneur lured him away from government work to join Love Feeds Ltd. in 1970 thus bringing the family business into its third generation of operation.  His tenure in the feed business was marked by his role as President of the Alberta Feed Association.

Jim has been an integral part of the many family business ventures undertaken over the past 45 plus years. Chief among them has been the establishment, together with his brother Peter, of Cask Brewing Systems Inc. where he is currently Co-owner and Vice President. Cask is a pioneer in the development of canning lines to suit the packaging needs of craft brewers worldwide.

He and his wife Bernice have been married for 44 years and together have four sons and seven grandchildren
