Geneviève Gagnon has earned two bachelor’s degrees, one in Psychology and one in Public Relations. She worked in public affairs, communications and event planning for over 6 years as a consultant for businesses and for non-profit organizations. In 2003, she launched La Fourmi Bionique, a Montreal-based food processing business that now employs twenty people and where she holds the title of President. From the very beginning, her business has kept growing. Fourmi Bionique specializes in artisanal cereals made from local, organic and fair trade ingredients, as well as high-quality snacks, all made with an eco-responsible approach. Throughout her entrepreneurial journey, Geneviève has received over a dozen prizes and honours, including the Prix des Femmes d’Affaires (Quebec Businesswomen’s Award) in 2011 and 2019. Mother to three young children, Geneviève’s experience proves that business success and motherhood can go hand in hand.
La Fourmi Bionique is sold in more than 2000 locations throughout Canada and France and the business is in an enviable position in both retail and institutional markets. This has allowed the company to earn repeat appearances in the PROFIT 500 annual rankings as well as the Canada’s Top Growing Companies 2021 ranking.
Since 2004, the Fourmi Bionique brand has been driven by the desire to promote healthy, sustainable and gourmet products. From the local, organic, and fair trade ingredients to the artisanal techniques used, the granolas, mueslis, and snacks, with carefully chosen ingredients, reflect the brand’s values and Canadian roots. Fourmi Bionique has become synonymous with quality and luxury, bringing a bold, contemporary angle to classic products which celebrate the pleasure food can bring while promoting a wholesome lifestyle.
