Montréal and Quebec are known worldwide for their thriving gastronomic scene, which stands out for its quality establishments, the renowned chefs who run them, and the diversity of its niche producers. However, the pandemic, with its closures and reduced traffic, has shaken the sector.

As part of “I love working downtown” initiative, the Chamber and Québec chefs and niche producers presented an impact study and roadmap to promote the sector’s recovery and contribution to our economy. This initiative led the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation to support the creation of La Table Ronde, a new collective of chefs and niche producers who aim to develop and promote local gastronomy.

Come and learn more about:

  • the Quebec gastronomy collective La Table ronde
  • Quebec’s food scene
  • Quebec gastronomic ecosystem
  • the future of Quebec gastronomy

Who is this activity for?

The Chamber is inviting members of the Montréal and Québec business community, gastronomy sector representatives and local niche producers to come together to celebrate and help spur the growth of the gastronomy sector.

This initiative will enable the Chamber to support the initiatives carried out by La Table Ronde. Part of profits generated by this event will be donated to the collective.

This event is for:

  • Local business community leaders
  • Food enthusiasts
  • Gastronomy professionals
  • Local chefs, restaurateurs and producers
  • Tourism and hospitality industry professionals
  • The industry’s next generation
