Message from the president

A proud Quebec-based food distributor

Dubé Loiselle offers impeccable customer service driven by family and human values. Evolving, adapting, and satisfying food industry standards are sizeable challenges to which we rise year after year. Founded in 1948, the words “dynamism” and “creativity” accurately summarize the company’s operations. We possess numerous tools for reaching out to our clientele, either via our online buying platform, our interactive Website, our “À Votre Table” magazine and at the Salon alimentaire printanier.

Thank you to all our clients, suppliers, and employees for contributing to our corporate growth.

Daniel Lachapelle
President

220 suppliers
1M KM per year
24 specialized trucks
3 distribution centres

Numbers that speak for themselves

Dubé Loiselle has more than 8,500 products in regular inventory which we source from 220 partner suppliers. We keep a close relationship with each of them in order to optimize the products we support, and at the best possible price. Each privileged relationship we have with our partners allows us to benefit our customers, because the customer is at the heart of our values.

Our 24 trucks, designed with two temperature zones allow us to deliver dry, frozen, refrigerated and fresh products on time, and in optimal storage conditions. Each year we travel over one million kilometers to serve our customers within 250 kilometers of our distribution centers. Everyone's requirements are at the heart of the transaction and we strive to always meet them. Our dynamic team of transport ambassadors are experts and know our customers by name. Willing to respect the specificities of each, the delivery of orders is always done with the aim of not disturbing the operations of our customers.

We operate in 3 separate distribution centers located in the city of Granby. Our distribution center on Dufferin Street, where our administrative services are located, is actually a giant 21,000 square foot freezer with a maximum height of 30 feet. Adjacent to this freezer is a 6,500 square foot refrigerator. The loading dock is also kept at a low temperature so as not to break the cold zone when loading or unloading goods. Our distribution center on Moeller Street is where dry products are kept that do not require refrigeration or freezing. This 45,000 square foot warehouse gives us all the space we need to keep sufficient quantities of products and to promote their rotation in order to always offer food of optimal freshness. As for our center on rue Guy, it is dedicated to fresh fruits and vegetables. With a floor space of approximately 5,000 square feet, it allows us to maintain a sufficient assortment of perishable products to meet the needs of each of our customers.

At Dubé Loiselle, all our efforts are directed towards the complete satisfaction of our customers.

1980
