The Coop Alentour is a consumer cooperative which began in 1979. Its founders were seeking ways to obtain natural products at the best possible prices. To do this they created a cooperative and then rented warehouse space and hired staff.
Over the years, they were forced to diversify their activities to be able to benefit from volume discounts. The members then decided to set up a distribution system for the benefit of commercial clients.
The Coop Alentour, a natural foods wholesaler, is the only cooperative that offers a distribution service throughout Quebec and parts of Ontario and the Maritime provinces.
The philosophy of Coop Alentour is to offer superior quality products and natural and organic foods at competitive prices with service that is personalized, reliable and courteous, at the right time and in the appropriate quantities.
The Coop Alentour is also one of the organizations that contribute to the development of healthy eating habits in Quebec.
Distribute, transform and promote organic and natural products for its clients while respecting its employees, its suppliers and the environment, all for the greatest benefit of its members.
Overseen by a multidisciplinary board of directors, the management team at Coop Alentour coordinates a team of some 70 employees who are dedicated to the satisfaction of its members, clients and suppliers.
