A brief history

Brother and sister Junior and Marie-Pier grew up on their family’s field crop farm in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Montérégie. Both have been working there for several years, following in their father’s footsteps. It was after taking an agricultural entrepreneurship course at Université Laval that a question began to germinate in their minds: how could they, in their own way, push soybean farming to the next level?

It was while exploring the various soy-based food products on the market that the idea for TVP was born: it’s a wonderfully nutritious, affordable product, made right here at home and in tune with current food trends! That’s all it took for Marie-Pier and Junior, along with their spouses Maxime and Cloé, to get the ball rolling. Les Brutes was born.
