Particularities of Our Market

The Quebec food market isn’t the same as other Canadian provinces or the American market. Since 1968, Bellemont Powell has taken into consideration the different types of markets where your product can penetrate in order to then deploy effective sales and launch tactics. 

Dietary Trends

In order for your product to please consumers, it’s important to know their dietary trends and to fully penetrate the food market. In turn, changes in these trends often imply changes that will affect products. For example, a new flavour could be gaining popularity or a new health concern such as Trans-fat content, etc. Several factors and dietary trends might be easily overlooked.


Since 1968, Bellemont Powell has proven itself to be an expert and invaluable resource for guiding you through each phase of your products’ commercialization in the Quebec market. Offering products in stores today, means not only following cultural standards, but also maintaining a proactive stance with regards to new trends and market knowledge.

Whether it’s putting you in contact with corporate offices and their grocery stores or presenting your product in a pleasing light to Quebecers, Bellemont Powell aptly knows who the food commercialization market’s principle stakeholders are and how to showcase your product to capture consumer attention.

Retail Market

Bellemont Powell understands the full significance of “retail” when it comes to the precision, variety, and availability of the product. We are fully equipped to implement food marketing strategies, and, above all, to make sure that they are effective in retail: store by store, warehouse by warehouse.
