Sollum lights the way for tomato greenhouse in Quebec
Sollum Technologies announced that Les Serres Bertrand, a leader in the greenhouse industry, has chosen to install its dynamic LED lighting solution for its tomato greenhouse located in Lanoraie, QC, which it acquired in 2017. This investment is the company’s first foray into LED technology.
Les Serres Bertrand is a dedicated family-operated business, with a facility in Mirabel as well as Lanoraie. It is well known for its commitment to local quality produce and innovative agricultural practices. With a storied history of growing the distinctive pink tomato, traditionally favored by Québec consumers, the company produces 12 additional tomato varieties and products that are distributed in major grocery chains throughout the province.
"In our continuous quest for innovation and excellence, we see the adoption of Sollum’s LED grow light technology as a natural progression,” said Stéphane Bertrand, owner of Les Serres Bertrand. “This isn't merely about integrating LEDs; it's about shaping the future of agriculture in Québec and delivering unparalleled quality to consumers who, more and more, favour local produce.”
"We're excited that Les Serres Bertrand, a beacon of excellence in the greenhouse industry, has chosen our dynamic LED grow light solution to elevate their tomato cultivation,” said Kassim Tremblay, vice president of business development for Sollum Technologies. “It’s a testament to the transformative potential of our technology and its synergy with sustainable farming. Our team of technicians, agronomists and horticultural specialists look forward to supporting Les Serres Bertrand’s transition to Sollum’s LED grow light solution from planning to harvest, to ensure that their objectives are fully met."
