About us

We preserve Montreal's culinary heritage by crafting natural, high-quality products while promoting local sustainability and community connections for the past 70 years.



A Montreal Legacy of Flavor. Since 1948, Putter's has proudly established a typically Montreal heritage as a craft maker of quality fermented products. We take pride in being a part of Montreal's culinary history and being recognized for our iconic products, such as dill pickles, served in the city's steakhouses and delis for decades.


Natural Products

Our fermented products are natural, free from artificial preservatives, colorings, and flavors. Every bite of our pickles, sauerkraut, and other specialties offers authentic taste and health benefits. We believe in the purity of ingredients and the freshness of our products, which is reflected in every jar.


Local and Eco-Friendly Commitment

At Putter's, we believe in the importance of supporting our local community. We source high-quality ingredients from local producers, not only strengthening our commitment to the region but also reducing our carbon footprint. Our eco-friendly approach is deeply ingrained in our DNA, and we continually work to minimize our environmental impact.


Strengthening Local Ecosystems

With our recent acquisition of our second plant in Ste-Hyacinthe region, we continue to reinforce local agriculture. Far from being a mere expansion for Putter's Pickles, this decision represents a conscious choice to invest in the sector. We believe it is essential to contribute to the creation and maintenance of jobs in the Canadian agri-food industry. We value this role and are committed to it.
