Saputo Presents Le Burger Week
Burgers for Everyone
Since taking the nation by storm last year, burger lovers across Canada have explored new and innovative food joints and tasted the best burgers their city has to offer. Growing from a single competition in Montreal to a national festival with over 200 000 participants – Le Burger Week is now one of the most buzzed about food festivals in Canada!
Le Burger Week has even reached Haiti, taking place in Port- au-Prince and Cap Haitien.
Restaurants, diners, and burger joints everywhere need to bring their A-game to this week-long festival, after working all year to develop new dishes, or perfecting fan-favourites and old classics. To throw their hat in the ring, each participating spot must develop a unique burger reflective of their overall concept, style, and cuisine. These competition burgers are then offered at a special “burger price”, for the public to taste and cast their votes on leburgerweek.com. At the end of the festival, burgers in each city will be crowned champions in various categories such as: the ‘People’s Choice’, the ‘Most Creative’ and the ‘Healthiest Burger’. Le Burger Week also sends undercover tasters all over the country to award the ‘Judges Choice’ title. Don’t miss out on crowning Canada’s best burgers!
Created by Montreal-based entrepreneurs Na’eem Adam and Thierry Rassam, Le Burger Week was first and foremost developed due to Na’eem and Thierry’s love of burgers! Soon after, they recognized the economic opportunities for local businesses that derived from the festival; most notably providing restaurants with the chance to build greater public awareness through their participation.
Over 400 restaurants across two countries, thirteen Canadian cities and six provinces are participating this year, in the biggest production of Le Burger Week yet! This includes the provinces of; Manitoba, Alberta, British Colombia, Quebec, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. Many of your favourite restaurants will be showing off the most mouth-watering burgers they have to offer. Take a bite and see what your favourite spots have created this year!
