Founded in 1987 following the acquisition of a small slaughterhouse in Témiscouata, Les Viandes du Breton has become a major actor in the agri-food sector. Modern facilities, a dedicated team and the ongoing determination to offer quality products through responsible farming: this forms the basis of the company’s guiding principles.
Today, Les Viandes du Breton is the North American leader in the market for specialty pork products. Our company was the first in the North American pork industry to be awarded Certified Humane Raised and Handled® status by Humane Farm Animal Care. Fresh and processed natural and organic products are sold under the duBreton name throughout North America.
Created through an acquisition in 2002, Les Spécialités Prodal is one of the company divisions responsible for secondary meat processing to make deli meats and other products.
