June 16, 2015, Baie-Sainte-Anne, Que. – Berger and Theriault & Hachey Peat Moss have announced a strategic alliance. It involves the transfer of harvesting rights of a bog in the Baie-Sainte-Anne region in New Brunswick.

This new bog allows Berger to ensure the continuity of its Baie-Sainte-Anne and Bay du Vin facilities for the next 40 years. “We are very pleased with this alliance,” said CEO Claudin Berger. “It gives us access to top-quality peat.”

The company has built its reputation with professional growers around the world thanks to the consistent quality of its products, which is guaranteed by access to raw material.

“This alliance enables our company to pursue its operations independently and therefore continue to serve our customers for years to come,” added riault & Hachey president Gary Williston.

This news is also beneficial for the entire Canadian peat industry. Since the bog is now under the governance of Berger, it becomes Veriflora® certified, a certification for the responsible management of peatlands.


With over 50 years of experience, excellence and evolution in the industry, Berger enjoys a strong international presence. Headquartered in St-Modeste, Quebec, Berger operates 12 bogs and seven plants located throughout North America. In addition, Berger products are sold in over 20 countries worldwide.

In New Brunswick, Berger operates bogs, a bagging plant and a mixing plant in the Baie-Sainte-Anne, Bay du Vin and Plaster Rock regions, providing employment to over 175 people. For more information, visit
