Meet the owner

Tucked away on a lower level on Laurier Street, Le Fromentier has earned the reputation of preparing some of the best bread in town. What began as a small operation in Founder Benoit Fradette's garage has grown into a renowned bakery-café area residents rave about and Montreal establishments rely on to supply delicious products clients will adore.

Benoit started the business making bread using organic flour out of his garage. The bread was a hit with friends and neighbours, so his next step was to open a bakery. For ten years, Le Fromentier flourished on Fabre Street, so much so that by 2003, the space just wasn’t big enough to meet the demand. Benoit moved the bakery to Laurier Street that summer, but soon he was seeking a new challenge. He sold the bakery to Benoit Paradis, an employee who’d been with the company since the beginning, and D’Arcy Desmarais, a friend who was working in sales at the time, along with Annie Renaud and another co-owner.
