Then and now
At the beginning of F. Ménard in 1961, there was a man. A passionate man, honest and hard-working. A man determined to succeed. A man for whom innovation was not optional…
His vision? To develop an integrated production model and control each step in the production process. Surround himself with the best. Nothing less.
This vision led him to be the first in Quebec to partner with farmers, who are still considered part of the extended Ménard family today. Specifically, F. Ménard supplies animals and feed to the farmers, who in turn provide their facilities and their labour.
More than 50 years later, the business has carved its niche among the leaders of the pork industry either in the local retail market as well as in export markets.
A couple years later, three sons took over the torch. Through them, the family tradition have endured, a guarantee of trust, know-how and success. In 2020, the company have been sold to two divisions of La Coop fédérée : Sollio Agriculture and Olymel.
More than ever, the business is proud to produce healthy, tasty pork meat of incomparable quality. Meat that is truly worthy of F. Ménard’s seal of excellence.
