Feeding the world with passion

Olymel is a modern company that draws on a pool of know-how rooted in a long tradition of excellence and best practices in the industry. We express our core values in many ways, such as by never compromising on quality, continuously improving our performance in order to better serve customers, and lastly, constantly striving to inspire trust.

Olymel sees innovation as a key factor in its success, so it attaches tremendous importance to improving its products. By listening to its suppliers as well as its customers, the company keeps abreast of new consumer trends in order to better meet consumer expectations. Proud of its products and its own brands, such as Olymel, Flamingo and Lafleur, our company also puts its expertise and vast manufacturing capabilities to work for private labels that are also recognized for their excellence in the market.

Olymel is dedicated to meeting or even exceeding the highest industry standards in all its operations. Our company also strives to be socially responsible, setting an example by its animal welfare practices, using environmentally friendly processes, and supporting the communities in which the company operates. We can only fulfill our mission by maintaining these standards.

The strength of the company we have been building for more than thirty years ago leads me to believe that Olymel will be able to continue to feed the world , with passion, for many years to come.

Olymel celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021. These decades have been a period of continuous growth, allowing the company to gain new expertise and synergies through a number of acquisitions and business partnerships. Olymel is now the Canadian leader in producing, processing and marketing pork and poultry meat, and it's all thanks to the dedication of our 12,000 employees and our customers' loyalty. We're proud to serve the Canadian market and to export our products in over 65 countries. We have over 30 plants in five Canadian provinces, and we're passionate about fulfilling our mission of feeding the world every single day by focusing on innovation, quality and excellence in every area across our business.

Our mission

A leader in the agrifood industry, and proud of its Quebec roots, the superior quality of its products and its 12,000 employees, Olymel has a single motivation and mission: together, we feed the world.

Our values


Integrity is a value that ensures we make no compromises on the quality of what we produce. This value corresponds primarily to our total commitment to the safety and wholesomeness of our products, the ultimate factor in customer and consumer trust.


Respect must reflect an attitude of constantly seeking the best solution for our customers. This means making every effort to improve our performance.


Without trust, there is nothing. This is true in all areas, but particularly important in our relationships with our various customers. The things we do in performing our work every day must inspire confidence.
