Our Group

Our divisions are independent companies that share our vision and mission. Specializing in different aspects of superior quality fresh fruit and vegetable distribution, they are members of our family and part of our heritage.


Social responsibility

We strive to operate responsibly. That's why we minimize our waste by recycling and composting. We regularly donate fruit and vegetables to different organizations including Moisson Montréal, to help provide healthy food for people in need.

We avoid food waste by entrusting Jus Loop with processing our ripe fruits and vegetables into cold-pressed juice. Even the pulp that's rejected during the juicing process is recycled by a company that makes dog treats.
