China’s Evergreen Meat Market to open next week in Canada
Evergreen Market will open its second location in Montreal in November, bringing the market to Canada’s fourth-largest city.
The meat market is the latest addition to a growing list of local businesses that offer products for consumption in Chinese markets around the world.
The meat market has expanded from a small location in China’s Chongqing to a full-service meat market in China, and is now located in Canada.
“We’re so excited about the opportunity to expand our footprint in Montreal,” said Erin Hsu, co-owner of Evergreen.
“We are very grateful to be a part of such a beautiful city.”
Evergreen is now the only local market in Canada offering its meat products to Canadian customers, including its beef products, and its seafood and seafood-based products.
The Montreal market opened its first meat counter at the end of August, offering its beef and seafood products to a Canadian customer.
Evergreen’s meat counter has been selling its beef, seafood and shrimp products to customers in the Montreal area for several years.
“The Chinese community here in Canada is very proud to have our products on the market and to serve the local Chinese community,” said Hsu.
The Montreal market is expected to attract thousands of visitors during its first two months, and the new location is expected add another 500 jobs to the city’s economy.
Hsu said the Montreal market has the potential to become an international hub for Chinese food.
“I think we’re going to see the growth of EverGreen in Montreal over the next few years,” she said.
“As a city, we have a lot to offer the Chinese community, so it’s really exciting for us to be able to expand the market here.”
The Montreal meat market opened in the summer of 2017, and since then, Evergreen has opened several locations in Hong Kong and Singapore.
Evergreen opened its Montreal store in June 2018, and has since expanded the operation to include several restaurants in other Canadian cities.
“We really have a strong base here in Montreal, and we’re really excited to be here, to be in a market like this,” said Evergreen owner Erin Hsi.
The Evergreen meat market also sells its own meat products in Canada, and Hsu said she is excited to expand her company’s offerings to other markets.
