A passion made to share
La Boucanerie d’Henri was founded by Josée Harbour and Claude Bernard. Their passion for hot smoked salmon sparked so much interest among their entourage that the couple had already been planning to start an artisanal business for a few years. In 2016, they turned their passion into a full-time occupation.
Nowadays, the founders share their years of experience and family tradition with all smoked salmon lovers. They participate in numerous events all year long to pass on the flavours and benefits of hot smoked salmon because their passion rests not only in the thoughtful manner of crafting their final product, but also in the pleasure of sharing it.
La Boucanerie d’Henri has set itself the mission of offering exceptional hot smoked salmon and salmon jerky with a distinguished taste and freshness as well as a unique texture.
The company wants to position itself as a choice supplier by combining technology, the richness of a traditional process, and personalized customer service for individuals, restaurant owners and retailers from the province of Quebec.

A history of tradition and flavour
« La Boucanerie is the term my grandfather would use to talk about his smokehouse. He lived in Baie Trinité, a beautiful village in Quebec’s Côte Nord bordered by the St. Lawrence River. Rivière Trinité, a salmon river, ran right in front of the family home. In 2004 in Baie Trinité, we had the privilege of learning how to smoke salmon according to the traditional method alongside my uncle Ti-Georges. He had learned it from my grandfather Henri Tremblay himself. We really felt that he was proud to pass on this family knowledge. He did so with all his passion as well as a touch of his personal humor.”
