At its annual general meeting held virtually on June 4, the members of La Coop Unifrontières voted in favour of adopting a new name for the cooperative: Uniag Cooperative.
In times of pandemic, the launch of this new name and revamped visual identity took on a virtual form. It is therefore with pride that today we present our brand-new website as well as a corporate video. This video allows us to present all the facets of our organization and highlight the incredible work of all the players in the agricultural field who allow us to exist and perform as a cooperative. This new identity better reflects our business relationships, the territory we serve and the two languages in which we operate daily.
“I am very proud of our progress since 2016. We have succeeded in realizing our vision of what Uniag Cooperative represents, thanks to the great people who are part of our team. Achieving this result has taken a lot of work and I think the new name comes at the perfect timing,” says Sylvain Brault, President of the Board of Directors. »
“Members and employees can be proud of what their cooperative is becoming! The name change is in line with all the actions that have been taken since the merger in 2016 to ensure that Uniag Cooperative becomes a reference throughout the territory it serves, in all of its business sectors,” said Jean-Sébastien Leblanc, General Manager of the cooperative. »
