Savoura Bio acquires Serres Jardins-Nature in Gaspésie
Sainte-Sophie, October, 3, 2017 – Stéphane Roy, President of Sagami / Savoura / SAVOURA BIO, is proud to announce the company’s acquisition of Serres Jardins-Nature in New Richmond, Gaspésie. After the Sagami / Savoura / SAVOURA BIO group entered into a partnership agreement with the Gaspé-based company last February, the time had come to create an operational synergy aimed at conquering the vast North American potential market for the production of organic tomatoes in Quebec.
A major consolidation for the greenhouse industry
This transaction within the greenhouse industry will further strengthen organic greenhouse farming’s strategic position in Quebec. For Stéphane Roy, this latest acquisition was the obvious next step in order to increase and strengthen market share in an increasingly competitive and complex business context. “I am proud to not only help maintain and consolidate employment in Gaspésie, but also to contribute to the economic development of the agricultural sector in this region and the entire province. We will leverage all our expertise and know-how to optimize this production facility built in 2002 and make this operation a success,” said the President of Sagami / Savoura / Savoura BIO.
