Marie-Christine Larose and Mathieu Grégoire
Growers, Ferme MCL Inc.

Marie-Christine Larose  grew up on a poultry farm in St-Isidore, in the Beauce region.  Having good knowledge of her profession as a farmer, but wanting to improve her management skills, Marie-Christine completed in 2007 a DEP in accounting.

In 2008, she bought a poultry farm in Scott-Jonction, with her two parents. Marie-Christine managed the three-storey building with her father's help. They were producing 600,000 kg of broilers per year.

In 2010, Marie-Christine met her future spouse, Mathieu Grégoire, who grew up on a dairy farm right across the street. Mathieu was then managing the dairy farm, while working night shifts at the Olymel slaughterhouse in Vallée-Jonction. A few months later, Mathieu joined her in the management of the poultry farm. In 2012, they got married and now have 3 children.

In 2014, Marie-Christine bought back her father's shares.  Mathieu and Marie-Christine are now the only managers of the farm.

From 2015 to 2018, Marie-Christine held a seat on the UniCoop co-operative's Board of Directors.
