We are delighted to announce that Toundra Greenhouses was crowned this year’s grand champion, taking top honours in the categories of RBC Royal Bank Start-up and Contribution to Regional Economic Development, as well as taking home the prestigious Mercure Small or Medium-Sized Business of the Year. These mercures are the result of determined teamwork and a renewed vision of greenhouse culture in Quebec.
“I would like to thank all of our employees and partners, local and overseas, who have helped Toundra Greenhouses achieve the highest standards in the greenhouse industry, and to recognize the fact that we have achieved all this before our company even hits the five-year mark.
