Lanthier Bakery has received a $2 million repayable contribution from the federal government to expand its Baie d'Urfé plant, and modernize a new digital production line.

Founded in 1932, Lanthier Bakery is a family-owned business located in Alexandria.

In 1985, it set up a second production plant on the Island of Montréal, where it makes bread using traditional recipes. In 2016, in cooperation with its principal shareholder, France-based La Fournée Dorée, Lanthier Bakery developed a new range of brioche breads – a niche product – and now aims to specialize in this niche market, where demand continues to grow.
