Créateurs de saveurs
Créateurs de saveurs are agri-food producers that are designated by this title for the meticulous care with which they grow or produce food infused with Townships’ flavours that is then served to you. These foods range from berries to wild boar to cheese.
The Créateurs de saveurs label is a mark, a sign of the quality that can be found in certain grocery stores and public markets. They are increasingly well known, and they are already in high demand in some places. The list of Créateurs de saveurs is impressive, as is the finesse of their products.
For all those who are interested in learning how we take care of our animals, such as our alpacas, wild boards, and other animals; how we cultivate our beautiful farmland; or how we produce so many award-winning cheeses, the province’s best ice cream, award-winning wine’s from Quebec’s first wine-growing region, as well as ice wines, ice ciders, honey, maple syrup, lavender, etc., stop and see for yourself.
