Story of the Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes

Access the interactive map of the Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes and discover the story of this authentic company from Lac-Saint-Jean.

In 1939, a group of Dolbeau citizens formed a committee of industrial initiatives: one for wood, one for clothing and one for food.

From this initiative, a candy shop was born which was the ancestor of the chocolate factory you know today. Equipment was purchased to make a candy called "the candy of the Lake’’.

In 1978, it was officially incorporated into a chocolate factory and its name was officially changed to today’s: La Chocolaterie des Pères Trappistes de Mistassini.

The labour has always shared between employees from outside and the religious community which is still the major owner of the company. The chocolate factory's mission is to meet the community’s needs.

Today's chocolate factory represents decades of effort and development by the Trappist Monk community. This work is, also, the passion and pride of its workers that give the company its strength.

During their 125-year history, the Trappists monks of Mistassini have enrolled themselves in a long tradition of innovation in the service of quality, both at the farm level (milk, cheese and butter) and at the chocolate level.
