During his visit to New York in September, Québec Premier Philippe Couillard stopped by the Morton Williams food store on West 57th Street to show his support for Québec agri-food exporters taking part in the year-long Foods of Québec promotion currently underway at the popular supermarket chain.
Premier Couillard met with Morton Sloan, Morton Williams’ president, to discuss the promotion and learn about the various specialty products from Québec featured in the stores, even sampling some of them such as Première Moisson’s 189 Harwood mini pastries and grilled cheese made with Old Québec Vintage Cheddar by Agropur, dipped in LB Maple Treat’s maple syrup for good measure!
The Foods of Québec promotion is an initiative of Québec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in collaboration with the Québec Government Office in New York.
For a full list of products featured in the promotion, consult Morton Williams’ website.
