Co-initiator and managing director
Known to the general public for having won the first season of Les Chefs! airing on Radio-Canada, Guillaume knows how to meet challenges with vigour and determination in order to achieve the goals he sets for himself.
A strong-willled person, he excels at inspiring and motivating people to participate in the projects he undertakes. His 15 years of experience in kitchens provided a solid foundation for the La Transformerie project. In order to materialize his ideas, he followed a training course in canning to better understand the process at the Instituts de technologie agroalimentaire (ITA) on both the Sainte-Hyacinthe and the La Pocatière campuses as well as undertaking the Lancement d’entreprise training program at the SAJE Montréal. Creative and a perfectionist, he applies his many years of experience as a chef to develop original recipes using as his main ingredients the unsold fruits collected from partner merchants. He also acts as production manager, focusing on the quality of the produce as well as ensuring the sustainability of the project.
