Centre HUMAMI moves to Château Fontaine Vineyard


This move will give the sensory expertise centre a new posture focused on innovation, accessibility and autonomy. The centre and its team of professionals will enjoy a distinctive location in a unique building offering easy access and high visibility, making it a collaborative and innovative space for consumers, businesses and communities alike. Thanks to this agreement with Groupe Jefo, the Centre HUMAMI will be able to strengthen its capacity to support and enhance the competitiveness of local businesses and the marketing of winning, high-performance products. Centre HUMAMI, generators of progress!

«The Centre HUMAMI offers unique expertise in sensory science, a science at the heart of innovation in many countries. The location is one of the key factors in facilitating access to the many consumers who contribute their opinions every year and help develop successful products. The industry as a whole will also benefit from these large collaborative spaces, which will be built and adapted to encourage participation and the dissemination of knowledge. Visible from Highway 20 and perfectly located between Montreal and Quebec City, these facilities are tailor-made to enhance this essential strategic expertise for SMEs and multinationals alike.»

The services already offered by the HUMAMI Center will be enhanced by the move to a location that is easily accessible and encourages collaboration between consumers and businesses. This new initiative is fully in line with the vision of Cintech and its subsidiaries to be generators of food progress by offering support and solutions adapted to the challenges of the agri-food sector.»
