The Quebec brand positioned as a dairy trendsetter with this new line of dairy products

SOREL-TRACY, Quebec, February 23rd, 2016 – Riviera invites you to discover how little jars can pack a lot of taste with the launch of Petit Pot, a new line of yogurts and culinary products inspired by French cuisine. Available in grocery stores across the country, the new products combine the savoir-faire of Laiterie Chalifoux, producer of the brand Riviera, and current culinary trends.

“We wanted simple, tasty products that would bring people together to enjoy life’s sweet pleasures,” said Martin Valiquette, General Manager of Laiterie Chalifoux. “We are proud to introduce the Petit Pot line, a series of products designed to answer the growing consumer demand for fresh, local options without compromising on taste.”

With four generations of experience, Laiterie Chalifoux is one of Quebec’s great entrepreneurial successes. Under the Riviera brand, it established itself as a dairy trendsetter, launching innovative products, and demonstrating a focus on craftsmanship, from the choice of ingredients to the fine details of the packaging.

The Petit Pot product line includes three varieties of yogurts – or yogourts, in French – including a Quebec favourite goat milk yogurt with chunks of real fruits, a crème fraîche, a sour cream and three cultured butters, all presented in the new Petit Pot, made of glass.
100% recyclable and reusable, the Petit Pot glass jar has more than nine lives. For ideas on how to reuse your petits pots or recipes to create in the jars, please visit our Riviera Petit Pot Facebook page and check out our online store for all those little Petit Pot extras.

Furthermore, to celebrate the launch of Petit Pot, Riviera will distribute 8,000 lids that snap on easily and make the jars watertight. Find all details on our website. This offer is for a limited time only so hurry up – it’s first come, first serve!

Petit Pot harkens back to the old-fashioned glass bottles used for dairy products but is inspired by current products popular in Europe. With refined flavours of yogurt, consumers looking for a different taste will enjoy a little pleasurable moment with Petit Pot.
