BOUCHERVILLE, QC -- The Quebec Produce Growers Association held its 64th annual banquet Nov. 20 here at the Hotel Mortange, located just across the St. Lawrence River from Montreal.

The event, which celebrates the end of the local Quebec deal, drew approximately 525 members of the produce trade.

The association honored Sherrington, QC-based Les Fermes V. Forino Inc., a family-owned-and-operated grower-packer-shipper, with its Le Moisson d'Or, or Golden Harvest, award for the firm's contributions to growing produce in the province.
