Maison Orph e: Reinventing a Business Model after a Family Succession
In 1992, Florent B langer purchased Maison Orph e, a company founded in 1983 by a French immigrant who had settled in Quebec City. Recognized as Quebec's first artisanal oil producer, Maison Orph e pioneered the production of organic products and superior quality conventional products. Over the years, combining the art of artisanal oil production with sophisticated manufacturing techniques, the firm fine-tuned its expertise, building a reputation as a master oil maker and a specialist in first cold-pressed oils. In 2010, Florent passed the torch to his two daughters, Elisabeth and laine, marking the culmination of a gradual, multi-step succession process spread over several years. Working in tandem, the B langer sisters would go on to reinvent Maison Orph e's business model.
