Québec Parmentier, a leading potato producer bringing together 25 families, will hold all of the assets of Emballage Saint-Ambroise and Légupro, two agri-food companies specializing in potato packaging and processing of potatoes and vegetables.
“The desire for growth, the need to increase production and packaging capacities and the synergies that will be generated by pooling our activities have all been complementary factors in bringing together our companies,” said Mathieu Bouchard, president of Patate-Saint-Ambroise.
“The integration of these new partners confirms that the business model and the values advocated by the organization meet the interests of potato producers in Québec,” said Pierre Chouinard, CEO of Québec Parmentier. “We have the prosperity of the families who make up our organization at heart, which was one of the main motivations for the creation of Québec Parmentier.”
Québec Parmentier is the only producer organization in Canada that combines varietal development, research and development, seed potato production (high generation and commercial), table potato production, exporting, packaging and distribution. The company markets its products mainly under the Propur and Mamzells brands. Visit: www.quebecparmentier.com.
