About us

About Carrousel

Based in Boucherville since 1971, Emballages Carrousel has always maintained strong customer ties based on trust and a proactive approach. This has resulted in a loyal customer base—from small businesses to large multinationals—that knows we can provide them with whatever they need.

Over the years, our product offering has greatly expanded from its initial core of a few packaging solutions for butchers and bakeries, making Carrousel today’s industry leader in Québec. Whether you are looking for eco-friendly containers, pallet stretch films, strapping tools, or cleaning/maintenance products, our team of experts will advise you on the best product for your needs.

Guided by the values of respect and solidarity, Carrousel’s top priority is the wellbeing of its close to more than 400 devoted employees who exemplify the true meaning of team spirit. We also extend our caring attitude to many charitable organizations, which we support year after year.

HACCP certification

Logo-HACCP-grandCarrousel is proud to have obtained the HACCP certification for its 4 warehouses, as a result of the rigorous work done over more than a year. Meeting the major challenge of safety in food businesses, the HACCP method consists of a system of evaluation and control of the risks and hazards that threaten the safety of our products in our daily operations.

The implementation of the various programs required for HACCP certification has allowed us to completely review our procedures as a packaging and sanitary products distributor. These programs include, among others, training of our employees, pest control, good work practices and evaluation of our suppliers.

Carrou-cycle :

The program that gives a second life to stretch film!  

Each year, millions pounds of stretch film are used by many companies in Quebec. This material, most of which is currently sent to landfill sites, is a real environmental problem. As the largest distributor of packaging products in Quebec, Carrousel is very proud to have developed an innovative and eco-responsible solution that will help reduce the amount of residual material created by this packaging.

Carrousel has therefore joined forces with its longtime business partner, Polykar, a plastic bag manufacturer, to launch its brand-new recycling program for stretch film, Carrou-cycle.

This program, which implements the concept of the circular economy, will enable companies to meet their environmental commitments and transform used stretch film into new plastic products.
