About Us
 
1989:
BSA Food Ingredients s.e.c/l.p. (BSA) was founded through the initiative of Mr. Marcel Baril, current CEO of the company, who wanted BSA to become a supplier of food ingredients that would be recognized by its customers as a technical resource and a source of innovation in the marketplace. BSA started its operation by distributing ingredients and providing customized technical services. BSA is also the first Quebec Company to promote irradiation as a method of treating spices. As a result of its innovative approach, BSA quickly gained a reputation in the industry.

1994:
Barely five years after the start of the business, BSA decided to produce its own spices and ingredient blends in order to ensure regular supply, both in terms of quantity and quality. Soon after, because of a need for additional space, the company set up its operations on Pie IX boulevard in Montreal.

1996:
In order to secure a stable supply of spices in what was a very unstable market, BSA set up its subsidiary - BSA India Food Ingredients Private Ltd. Located in New Delhi, the BSA India team is charged with finding supply in local markets and in other Asian countries to guarantee quality of its raw materials.

1998:
Four years later, it moved into a new 70,000 square foot location at 6005 Couture Boulevard in Saint-Léonard, Montreal, Canada. To complement its ingredient business, BSA started a division to sell equipment, mainly to meat processing plants.

1999:
In co-operation with exclusive distributors, BSA created its “Support aux métiers de bouche” division. The mandate of this division is to supply artisan butcher shops and delicatessens with spices, seasonings and other products for this type of clientele. At the same time, BSA opened a sales office to service customers in the Maritimes, Canada.

2000:
In order to meet the growing demand and provide good service in the greater Toronto area, BSA established a sales office and a warehouse to meet the needs of its Ontario customers.

As a part of its long-term development strategy, BSA introduced a number of new products to satisfy the needs of its customers. BSA began offering ingredients produced by synthesis, such as sodium lactates and potassium lactates, as well as savoury flavours. A renowned chef also joined the BSA team to help it focus
on new culinary trends.

2005:
As a result of a growing need for space, and to meet the standards for HACCP accreditation, BSA expanded its Saint-Léonard facilities by approximately 53,000 square feet, bringing the total area of the facilities up to 125,000 square feet. This expansion project gave the company a new state-of-the art production area, as well as extra storage space for the segregation of allergenic products.

2007:
BSA received its HACCP certification. BSA Ontario office moved into new bigger premises, and new employees were hired to maintain the high level of customer service. Since its inception, BSA has stayed true to its philosophy by relying on close partnerships with customers with whom it shares its technical expertise and experience.
