Here at Fourmi Bionique, each one of our granola blends tells a story. It begins with Geneviève Gagnon, who started her venture in 2002. A Montreal native, Geneviève’s passion for exceptional local products led her to go meet with producers, artisans and farmers. Her goal was to understand their craft and gain a true appreciation of the fruit of their labour, commitment and passion. She spent countless hours in the kitchen, baking and perfecting her recipes, chopping the chocolate by hand, removing flower petals one by one and carefully packing her blends in paper bags.
As the years passed, Geneviève learned the secrets to perfect granola. Her recipes achieved an exquisite harmony. Shoppers discovered her products, gave them a try, and didn’t look back. With growing demand, she rolled up her sleeves and worked to grow her dream. Meanwhile, her family was growing too! But marriage and kids didn’t slow her down: they drove her to raise the bar, day after day. Her hard work was quickly rewarded with several top entrepreneurship prizes. Then, in 2017, Fourmi Bionique made the PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. Shortly thereafter, she received another prestigious prize for her latest creation: the Nutbrown range.
Today, Geneviève is an accomplished CEO and a mother of three. She is proud to run her company her way, without compromising her values, or Fourmi Bionique’s mission: to create unique, healthy, and gourmet granola blends while promoting local producers of natural, organic and fair-trade ingredients.
It takes patience to make great granola. At LFB we’ve transformed this tradition into a passionate new art form. We want people who care about themselves and their world to know there is a healthy pack of goodness ready to help them on their way.
