Montréal, September 16, 2015 – Lallemand is proud to announce that its Montréal yeast plant is celebrating its 100th year on September 19, 2015. Located in the south-east of Montreal, the yeast plant was built in 1915 by the original founder of Lallemand, Alsacian-born Fred Schuerer (called ‘l’allemand’), who founded the company at the end of the 19th century.
This yeast plant, where many different wine yeasts are grown and produced is the flagship plant of Lallemand, and it still stands today where it was originally built on Préfontaine street,.
Always innovating in terms of production optimization and with a strong link to the R&D process group, this yeast plant produces many of the wine yeasts available today.
A local celebration with the surrounding neighborhood and the city is organized on September 19th. Congratulations to 100 years of excellence and innovation.
