Communiqué de presse – Montréal, May 23, 2023

After a rigorous selection process, Cordon Bleu has chosen LG2 as the agency of record for its Clark, Cordon Bleu, Paris Pâté and Esta brands. As the Canadian company experiences unprecedented growth in Quebec, Canada and the United States, it has placed its trust in the country’s largest independent creative agency for its entire brand portfolio.

“LG2 has unparalleled experience in supporting local businesses and recognizes the importance of its brands. Its 360-degree understanding of brands and the habits of Quebec consumers make it a great ally. As Cordon Bleu celebrates its 90th anniversary and achieves historic growth, the time is right to begin a long-term collaboration with LG2. We’re so excited to embark on this relationship.”

With its in-depth knowledge of consumer dynamics in the agri-food and retail sectors, LG2’s multidisciplinary team and its extensive expertise will be put to good use.

“Supporting a local company’s desire to modernize is an exciting challenge for us. The trust granted by Cordon Bleu from our first meetings will allow us to successfully reposition the brand and guide it in developing new markets as its offer evolves.”
