A tradition

Brief History

Margiric’s tradition of excellence goes all the way back to 1945 when Marcel Gibouleau and his wife started selling eggs from the chickens raised on their family farm in Laval, Quebec.

In 1973, Mr. Gibouleau’s three sons – Richard, Francois and Alain – saw more potential in the land and decided to pursue another avenue with the family business: market gardening. They planted broccoli over a 10-acre lot, an initiative that triggered an interest in finding new techniques to diversify their crops and cultivate more unconventional products.


Growth over time

In 1976, Margiric acquires new greenhouses for transplant production, as well as a refrigerated warehouse to support its growing business and maximize the freshness of its produce. A new product is now part of the scene: peppers.

In 1985, the family business innovates once more by adding cantaloupe to its production, rewarding the brothers’ efforts to find the variety best adapted to Quebec’s climate. The company now farms 700 acres of land and employs over 120 people at peak periods.

New Markets

In the early 1990s, a third generation of entrepreneurs – Jocelyn, Martin and Jean-Francois – shows a strong desire to continue building the family business.

In 2009 Margiric expands into Ontario to meet the needs of its growing clientele.

In 2015 Margiric establishes a location in Florida, prolonging its harvest season.
