Our story

Our Cooperative is proud of its roots

In 1945, the 225 members of the Société coopérative avicole régionale de Saint-Damase joined forces with the 317 members of the Coopérative avicole régionale d’Etchemins, whose factory is based in Saint-Anselme. The union formed the Groupe Dorchester/Saint-Damase which would later become Exceldor. Today, we are Exceldor Cooperative.
