Since our founding in 2002, InvestEco has invested in over twenty private companies, listed below.
Maison Le Grand
Montréal-based Maison Le Grand is leader in artisanal, 100% plant-based foods. The company’s roots stretch back 27 years to when founder Bernard Le Grand started a company to sell sprouted and fermented sandwiches and salads, which he distributed in downtown Montreal on his bicycle. Bernard was eventually joined by his wife, Tatiana Bossy, who became the CEO. Under their co-leadership, Le Grand has enjoyed tremendous success, and is now a leading manufacturer of high-quality branded pestos, sauces and soups under the tag line “Power of Plants”.
LesserEvil is a fast-growing producer of organic and plant-based snacks sold through the United States and Canada. LesserEvil sells various SKUs of organic popcorn under its “Buddha Bowl” sub-brand, and a number of SKUs of GMO free potato chips under its “Green Elephant” sub-brand. The company has also recently launched a new line of organic grain-free Paleo Puffs. With the tagline “ingredients mean everything”, LesserEvil has become one of the fastest-growing brands in the snack food market by focusing on creating premium products that are clearly differentiated from the competition. With ingredients such as organic coconut oil, Himalayan pink salt, organic grass-fed ghee and extra virgin avocado oil, LesserEvil’s products are particularly attractive to consumers who are looking to indulge their taste preferences without sacrificing health.
