RÉINVENTER LE BEURRE

« Je connais bien des gens qui aiment plus ou moins les vins naturels, le café sous-torréfié et la cuisine austère nordique très actuelle prisée chez les bo-bo, remplie d’herbes sauvages et de viandes grillées, de baies aux noms oubliés et de plantes ancestrales.

HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE SUN
TO OPTIMIZE ENERGY USE

Many processing methods used in the agri-food industry consume a lot of energy.

This solar technology ensures significant reduction in hydrocarbon use. 

There are only four regional family dairies left in Quebec.  Therefore, our business needs to be very competitive to ensure our survival when competing with industry giants,” says Denis Chagnon, president of Laiterie Chagnon.

Today more than ever, businesses innovate by using green technologies that reduce environmental impact while maintaining the quality and integrity of their products.
