Innovation and Clean Products are the common denominators of Québec suppliers.”

Québec private label suppliers have been innovating many of the benchmarked private label brands around the world for more than two decades and continue to drive the innovation and quality that sets industry standards. With their strong emphasis on product safety, Québec suppliers often exceed industry expectations. Safety audited for your peace of mind (BRC, SQF and GFSI), ready to brainstorm and partner, Québec suppliers are small enough to adjust to your needs…and big enough to meet them.

The Québec Government Office in Chicago assists private label buyers before, during and after PLMA with custom product sourcing by working with them to asses their needs and then identify Québec suppliers who can provide a solution.   This service is offered by Québec Government Offices across the United States at no charge to US Buyers or to Québec companies. The Québec Government Office in Chicago specifically focuses on business development in the Midwest.
