2017 PARTNERS

PLATINUM

Saputo Foodservice

We are excited to continue our annual partnership with Saputo Dairy Products Canada (www.saputofoodservice.ca), and their award-winning goat cheese brands Woolwich Dairy and Alexis de Portneuf, bringing goat cheese to your menu in unexpected and wholesome ways – everyday! With over 30 years of dedicated experience working exclusively with goat dairy, Woolwich Dairy offers innovative flavours and formats made with fresh Canadian goat milk and simple ingredients; complimented by Alexis de Portneuf, originating in Saint Raymond, Quebec, which has stood the test of time, delivering quality fine cheeses for over 100 years.

Consumers are busier than ever, with a multitude of options at their fingertips and an increasing desire for tasty, “Instagramable” meals made with simple ingredients – so consider goat cheese your ‘go-to’ for menu elevation! Packed with flavour, goat cheese is a simple, yet gourmet addition that is on-trend with today’s ‘clean-eating’, ‘farm-to-fork’ approach to a balanced lifestyle.

Drive renewed interest in your menu, by reinvigorating menu classics for salads, pizzas, burgers and sandwiches, and adding creamy, rich texture to soups, sauces and dips! With many of Woolwich Dairy and Alexis de Portneuf’s goat cheeses high in protein and nutrition-packed, we invite you to explore the world of goat cheese through the eyes of two of Canada’s top brands. Multiple seminars are scheduled on Saturday, May 27th – pre-registration details to follow.

Acadian Sturgeon

Acadian Sturgeon was founded in March 2005 for producing the best Canadian sturgeon and caviar! We work with both local sturgeon species, Atlantic and shortnose sturgeon. Sturgeon is used nose-to-tail and the caviar and sturgeon products are sold all across Canada, online (Costco.ca, own online store), to foodservice, deli stores, etc.

Acadian Sturgeon’s strategy of developing a sturgeon aquaculture business using live sturgeon sales and sustainable harvest of wild sturgeon is truly one-of-a-kind in this world! The company catches up to 350 of the fish a year quota, in a traditional and strictly regulated wild Atlantic sturgeon fishery. We also produce shortnose and Atlantic sturgeon caviar and meat in a land based aquaculture operation and sell live sturgeon all over the world for restocking, aquaculture, ornamental and research.
