Charcuterie La Tour Eiffel’s mission is to provide consumers with a fresh and authentic taste of France, every single day.
In 1966, two brothers emigrated from France to the welcoming province of Quebec. Butchers by profession, on arriving in Montreal they opened a local shop named “Boucherie Parisienne”. Ten years later, having noted the popularity of their country-style pâté, the pair launched the Tour Eiffel brand with this product as its first offer. With this move, the brothers embarked on an exciting journey which would be marked with success at every turn.
Founded in 1976, Charcuterie La Tour Eiffel has built a first-class reputation in the deli meats market. Renowned for its French origins, the brand enjoys strong market popularity for its top-quality product range, which still retains its traditional French identity.
