The history of a
down-to-earth family

Claude Lafrance has been marching to his own drum from a very young age!


Born into a farming family, he and his brother Alain took over the family dairy farm in Saint-Basile-le-Grand in the 1980s. They then worked as partners producing milk and growing field crops, before founding Soya Excel, a soybean processing company.


The adventure of Les Entreprises Lafrance Division Grains began in 2009, when Claude realized the tremendous potential in the grain trade. With the help initially of his wife, Lyne Fontaine, and then of David Michon, who came on the scene in 2016, the company has developed an extensive business network across Quebec and Ontario.


In just over 10 years, the company has carved out a special place for itself in the hearts of grain and cereal producers, millers and processors in both provinces. As a result, the company now trades close to 400,000 tonnes of product a year – no mean feat by anybody’s standards!


What’s more, since 2004, Claude and Lyne have set up two other companies with the help of their daughters (Geneviève, Marylène and Amélie) and a few other close collaborators:


  • Les Moulées Bellifrance
  • Boutiques pour animaux Bellifrance


You can be sure that such a close-knit farm-based team knows all the secrets about being one big, happy family!

Lafrance Division Grains


The Lafrance family started Les Entreprises Lafrance Division Grains on the old family farm in Saint-Basile-le-Grand.


The family firm acquired a building in Saint-Hyacinthe to house Les Entreprises Lafrance Division Grains and Les Moulées Bellifrance and opened the very first Bellifrance pet store.


David Michon arrived to join Claude and Lyne as a co-owner. This was a major turning point in the company’s development.


Business boomed as the company reached an annual trading volume of 300,000 tonnes of grains, cereals and other products.


Les Entreprises Lafrance Division Grains formed a partnership formed with Coop Agrobio du Québec.
