About us

Passion and expertise

Founded by Johnny Jeulin, a fifth-generation baker, pastry chef and chocolatier, the name “Les Moulins La Fayette” is synonymous with excellence and expertise. Our first bakery opened in 1994. Since then, our artisans have received many awards for their craft. Our breads, croissants, cakes and many other products uphold the rich tradition of artisanal methods. Now as ever, our commitment is to quality!

The first Les Moulins store opens in the centre of the village of Saint-Sauveur, in the Laurentians.

The Confédération des boulangers régionaux de France, a French confederation of regional bakers, awards Johnny Jeulin an honorary diploma for bread quality.

The company moves into more spacious premises, still in Saint-Sauveur, to serve its growing clientele.

We purchase the Boulangerie Pagé bakery in Saint-Sauveur to meet the growing demand for our products. We also win top honours in the “16 or more employees” category at the Gala d’excellence de la Vallée de Saint-Sauveur awards ceremony.

To distribute our products on a wider scale, we decide to expand our business network by issuing operating licences. In the same year, Boulangerie Pagé wins the “15 employees or less” category at the Gala d’excellence de la Vallée de Saint-Sauveur awards ceremony.

The Conseil québécois du commerce de détail (CQCD), Quebec’s retail council, honours Johnny Jeulin with the Order of Merit in retail trade.

The Fonds régional de solidarité des Laurentides regional solidarity fund partners with our expansion plan.

To meet our growth targets, we decide to centralize our activities in a new, 40,000 square-foot production centre in Mirabel. We also make this location our head office.
