Quebec is home to many produce growers who, every year, proffer a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to Quebec consumers.
Quebec produce growers justly take pride in the wide variety, quality and availability of their products. From the small family business to large agricultural operations, produce growers have the same mission: providing Quebec consumers with high-quality produce throughout the year. Onions, potatoes, carrots, strawberries, cabbage, apples, squash, raspberries, spinach, lettuce, shallots... a cornucopia of choices, a garden of colours, and an infinity of flavours!
