Who we are
Our vision of local products:
The notion of "terroir" or "du" terroir is rather broad and everyone has a bit of his vision of things. Quebec is not a single region, it is obvious.
We want to facilitate the marketing of small producers that we love and appreciate.
All our products are not 100% made with ingredients grown in Quebec, but we are looking for especially artisanal products worked with love by enthusiasts. The aim is to demonstrate that it is possible to sell Quebec products to everyone, and on the internet as well.
How we help producers:
We buy the products we sell at distributor price.
We offer free visibility to all producers, even placing a link to their website. We want to help them, as we can, to improve their promotion on the internet.
Our blog is an open door to all market players: we can publish all relevant information, without distinction. p>
What does Terroirs Québec offer?
