LAVAL, Quebec – Délimax-Montpak recently acquired Terrebonne, Quebec-based Viandes Forget, a multi-species meat processor. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded nearly 50 years ago by the Forget family, Viandes Forget operates a federally inspected meat processing plant and employs 70 employees. Délimax-Montpak, a processor of lamb and veal products, expects to expand the company’s processing capacity and enter the local market for beef with the Viandes Forget acquisition.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Viandes Forget in our group as it is also a family business with a long history in the meat industry,” said Alex Fontaine, Montpak president. “We are confident that this transaction will help us to expand our product offering to our customers and better serve the North American niche meat market.”

André Forget will join the Délimax-Montpak executive team. He said he “…is confident that the combined expertise of the two companies and industry know-how, will contribute to the growth of Quebec’s agri-foods industry.”
