Tips

Thousands of ways to adopt local products

Turn your grocery trips into culinary adventures that will lead you to discover the best that Quebec has to offer. Here are a few tips to help you get into the habit of buying local.

5 reasons for buying local

1.
Ease: It’s simple and accessible. All it takes is a trip to the grocery store.
2.
Solidarity: To support local producers and entrepreneurs who’ve gone through an unprecedented and difficult time, and who need your help to emerge from this stronger than before.
3.
Proximity: To pick a product that hasn’t travelled thousands of kilometres to reach our shelves and whose ecological footprint will be smaller.
4.
Pride: To feel proud in choosing a unique local product that was made by passionate people!
5.
Variety: By adopting local products, you create meals with local flavour and true Quebec concoctions!

Unique Quebec products

The grocery aisles are filled with local treasures! Allow your curiosity and your sense of discovery to guide you. Look for labels that indicate where the product or brand comes from, such as “Aliments du Québec” or “Aliments préparés au Québec” stickers or references to where the product was made.

Dairy products

Are you a fan of camembert? Have you tried Riopelle de l’Isle by Fromagerie Île-aux-Grues? Goat cheese, blue cheese, raclette cheese and more – there’s a Quebec cheese for everyone. The same goes for the many varieties of yogurt and Chagnon’s incredible selection of ice cream products!

Meat and charcuterie
You can’t go wrong at the meat counter with their excellent selection at your disposal! With internationally renowned meat like Quebec pork, you’re always in for a treat. Give in to Stefano’s Italian sausages for a family dinner, or treat yourself to dry sausages by C’Cochon, which pair perfectly with your happy hour cocktails.

Fish and seafood
Take advantage of the skills and limitless imagination of Quebec seafood producers. Add some Fumoir Gosselin smoked salmon to your salads for example, or maybe some crab meat from Fruits de mer du Québec. Or how about products from Sushis à la maison to help you make poke bowls, tartare or sushi rolls?

Summer brings a bounty of herbs, fruit and vegetables to the table, and you can find plenty of seasonal produce in our aisles. You can enjoy these local fresh products throughout the year, as many products such as lettuce, peppers, tomatoes, and more are grown in greenhouses.
