QuUÉBEC AGRIMARKETER OF THE YEAR
Each year, CAMA Québec honors the agri-marketing person of the year for his or her excellence in the marketing of a Québec product.
This year, CAMA Québec was particularly proud to honor Fabien Fontaine, President of Délimax Veaux Lourds Ltée, www.delimax.com, for his remarkable contribution in the promotion of Québec veal.
For more than 25 years, Fontaine has been involved in agriculture. Today, he is at the top of the most important Canadian company in the production of heavy calves. A man of action, entrepreneur and a visionary, he is determined to position Québec veal as a superior quality product. Located in St-Hyacinthe, Québec, Délimax Veaux Lourds Ltée was founded in 1989 and specializes in the production of milk and grain fed calves. Délimax has become a leader in this industry in North America.
Délimax offers many services ranging from the purchase of young calves, to providing high quality feed (milk, corn, protein supplements), transportation, as well as, qualified technical support. With its subsidiaries: a slaughterhouse in St-Germain, Québec, Bellivo, a meat packing facility in St-Angéle-de-Prémont, Québec and a recent partnership with Montpak International in Montréal, Délimax distributes its own line of products directly to its customers.
The Délimax team is always trying to push back its limits and move forward. Délimax is now going global with a particular focus on the U.S.
Congratulations to Fabien and his devoted team at Délimax!
