We support La Transformerie and its project "Les Rescapés" (the survivors). This project helps reduce food waste and makes use of unsold produce in grocery stores.
Les Rescapés are high-quality spreads made from unsold fruit, and their recipes are developed by chef Guillaume Cantin.
We contribute directly to the production of these spreads by delivering our unsold fruit to La Transformerie each week. We then showcase these products in the fruit and vegetable departments of our stores.
Three years ago, we installed two hives at the back of our Mayrand Food Depot store in Anjou with the help of our partner Alvéole. Preserving Quebec’s biodiversity is one of our chief concerns.
The bees in our hives pollinate our gardens and grounds.
Each year, we gift our employees small pots of fresh honey from our hive.
Our Mayrand Food Depot store in Anjou is equipped with a new artificial intelligence system for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, in partnership with Brain Box AI.
This technology allows us to manage the store's energy footprint more carefully and reduce its carbon footprint.
