What’s new


One more bite

Thanks to our store food recovery program One More Bite, food that would otherwise have been thrown out or composted, but is still good to eat, is now being recovered by regional food bank outlets in Quebec and various community organizations in Ontario. Unsold products such as meat, prepared dishes, dairy and bakery products are saved and then redistributed to local organizations, who cook the products and then offer meals to those in need.

2015 Highlights

We continued the rollout of our local purchasing program in 8 Quebec regions, increasing the number of new products to 842 coming from 133 suppliers.  The Ontario local purchasing program officially launched on June 9, 2016.

We launched our Food Recovery Program in more than 40 stores across Quebec and 30 stores across Ontario.

We supported the communities in which we operate by contributing more than $6.7 million in cash and product donations.
