April 19, 2017, TORONTO – Lachine, Que.-based Boulart, one of North America’s premier industrial artisanal bakeries, dominated the 2017 National Restaurant Association’s Food and Beverage (FABI) Awards, winning three awards – the most of any nominee this year.

The FABI Awards offer restaurant operators and consumers an inside look at the year’s most delicious, unique and exciting food products.

The three winning breads are:

  • Individually Wrapped Ciabatta Bites, in ovenable packaging that improves inventory and waste management, also has a barcode that can be scanned at retail if required.
  • Original Flat Sandwich Bun, a thin ciabatta bun created to satisfy consumer demand to minimize calories.
  • Olive Oil and Fine Herb Focaccia, made with simple and traditional ingredients, helps reduce kitchen waste and manage inventory, as it comes baked and frozen allowing for easy thawing or reheating as needed.

“We’re honoured to have three of our products recognized by the National Restaurant Association, especially as Boulart celebrates its 10th anniversary,” said Boulart president Michel Saillant.


Boulart breadwinners, pun intended, can be seen, and tasted at this year’s NRA Show in Chicago from May 20 to 23. Boulart is proud to once again be a 2017 NRA exhibitor and participate with this influential industry event, attracting visitors from over 100 countries.
