Agropur Cooperative today proudly announced that its new President is René Moreau. Mr. Moreau succeeds Serge Riendeau, who is retiring after heading Agropur’s Board for the past 15 years and serving as a director for 26 years.

René Moreau is a dairy farmer from Warwick, Quebec who has been a member of Agropur’s Board since 1998, representing the Nicolet-Bois-Francs region. He has served on numerous Agropur committees, including the Executive Committee since 2002. He became Vice President of Agropur in 2012. Mr. Moreau represents Agropur on the Boards of the Conseil québécois de la coopération et de la mutualité (CQCM) and Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC). He is an agronomist by training and holds a university certificate in corporate governance.

“I am gratified by the trust my colleagues have placed in me and excited about continuing Mr. Riendeau’s work,” said René Moreau. “He has left us a cooperative that is in excellent shape. Agropur has seen remarkable growth in recent years and is strongly positioned to continue its development. I am honoured to be able to build on the legacy of our predecessors and I look to the Cooperative’s future with tremendous optimism.”

Ms. Jeannie van Dyk and Mr. Roger Massicotte are the Vice Presidents.
