Celebrating Berger Peat Moss’ 60th Anniversary
January 30, 2023 – With much enthusiasm and excitement, today the Berger company launched a special video highlighting the company’s 60th anniversary. Berger, which has been rooted in the municipality of Saint-Modeste, in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, since 1963, currently employs more than 800 professionals located across Canada, the United States and Central America.
“There aren’t enough words to describe how proud and grateful we are towards all our employees who have contributed to the company’s success and history,” states Valérie Berger, co-president and CEO of Berger. “Over the years, Berger has forged an enviable reputation based on the quality of its products and the personalization of its services; and today, we’re celebrating more than 60 harvest seasons, 60 years of audacity and know-how.”
A third-generation family business, Berger currently operates 11 peat moss bogs and 9 plants in North America. For over sixty years, each successive generation at the head of the company has brought added value, allowing Berger to experience flourishing growth and significant gains in innovation. “We want to share these moments of joy with the entire Berger family,” added Mélissa Berger, co-president and CEO of Berger. “Our most sincere thanks go to our customers, our partners, the communities that welcome us and especially to the members of our staff, as well as their families, who contribute daily to the influence and success of our company, both here and abroad.”
To thank our host communities, Berger makes a point of participating in their socio-economic and community development by supporting suppliers in the region and getting involved in local initiatives by offering donations or various sponsorships.
