Mr. Bouchard, an administrator by training, is the developer and architect of the Larvatria project. He has an honors degree in Business Administration from UQAC. He began his career at the Quebec Cartier Mining Company where he accumulated for four years as an analyst jobs in cost, deputy director of the warehouse and financial analyst. The following seven years he held the position of Senior Vice President and General Manager Telesystem National, a telecommunications company that has experienced tremendous growth. He then accepted the position of President and Chief Executive Officer of Mux Lab, a public computer manufacturer for a recovery principal of four years. He worked five years later as Vice President Finance at M3i, a subsidiary of Hydro-Québec, and eventually working as a self-employed professional.
After several years of study and reflection, he redirected his energy to study the needs in business areas of concern, keeping with his core values and ambitions: nutrition, ecology and adaptation to climate change in the twenty-first century. His desire and determination to meet the complex challenges of security and food traceability, protection of biodiversity and the reduction of greenhouse gases within the context of self-sufficient agricultural production, lead to the creation of Larvatria Corporation and the solution it proposes.
Climate change caused by endemic pollution and rapid population growth are challenging the traditional supply chains of food and water. His philosophy stems from the observation that “it is often useful to examine and understand what nature has found as a solution than reinventing the wheel,” he likes to say. His readings of entomology, bacteriology and nutrition juxtaposed with business management, led him to imagine technical solutions and a realistic business solution for the animal feed industry.
