Fromagerie Champêtre Acquired by Nutrinor
Nutrinor, a Quebec cooperative with 965 members, has acquired a majority stake in Fromagerie Champêtre, a cheesemaker based in Repentigny, near Montreal. The stake is in partnership with Capital croissance PME, an investment fund.
Fromagerie Champêtre products, like Presqu’île, Tomme du Fleuve, Raclette Champétre, and Le Bocké, will join the other products Nutrinor markets, including the Organic Nordic line of dairy products and Fromagerie Perron.
“We know that in order for us to grow, stepping up sales outside the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region is critical. Fromagerie Champêtre offers an exceptional line of products that stand out for their quality and authenticity. Such a level of care is squarely in line with our vision of growth,” said Yves Girard, Nutrinor’s general manager.
