We received Dominique Talbot, journalist from the TVA\LCN network, on November 10th at our plant to discuss our challenges as a food manufacturer in the current economic context. To see the interview with our president Geneviève Gagnon, go to 8min:10seconds of the full program that aired on November 23rd (French version only).
When Beaconsfield resident Geneviève Gagnon found herself feeling dissatisfied with her career in communications and PR, she followed in her family’s footsteps and pursued becoming an entrepreneur. “My father had a convenience store for 30 years and I grew up there. It was my first job,” she said. “I was untameable in the work world and unhappy with my job, and I wanted to find a product or a passion I could invest myself in.”
I’ve long been a fan of this delicious granola, which is made in Montreal — and how great that they’ve launched a gluten-free/grain-free line made with oven-roasted nuts and seeds. So many granolas are either rancid or too sweet, but these three flavours are fresh-tasting and well balanced. Ideal for morning cereal or snacking. Buy all three varieties to make a great gift. Beware: it’s addictive!
