Hello to all our members,

Our next meeting will be held August 27-29, 2021 at the Delta Saguenay Hotel in Jonquière, Quebec, Canada.

Saturday's schedule LOCAL PRODUCTS CIRCUIT

This is the ideal circuit to discover the best local products in Saguenay. Visit the Fromagerie Blackburn farm, a family owned business that produces several first-class award-winning cheeses. Followed by a visit and tasting at Domaine le Cageot, a producer of handcrafted alcoholic beverages made of local berries. End the visit at an exceptional place, located at the foot of the Monts-Valin, the Distillerie du Fjord, it offers a discovery at the very core of the production process; the interpreting of boreal forest ingredients and the tasting of their beverage.
