The Baking Association of Canada unanimously welcomes Elisabeth Brasseur and Tony Llewellyn to its board of directors.
Brasseur will take the vacant Quebec position following the retirement from the board of Dominique Bohec. Llewelyn will take the B.C. post previously held by Martin Barnett, who has served since fall 2021 as executive director.
“Elisabeth comes to us from her family businesses, Farinart, a specialty mill and blending facility and SPB, a long-established food waste recycling service specializing in repurposing bakery surpluses. She has been involved in many organizations supporting the baking industry in Quebec and beyond, executive director Martin Barnett announced in a statement.
“Tony has spent a lifetime in the food-service industry in British Columbia including 35 years with Snowcap Enterprises, a full-service bakery ingredient supplier. He serves on the board of the BAC, BC Chapter, as well as other industry associations and during his tenure has supported the baking industry at many events.”
Brasseur follows in the footsteps of Dominique Bohec, president of Boulangerie Humanité in Trois-Rivières, Que. The board thanks Bohec for more than a decade of service, since April 2012. Llewellyn takes over as director for B.C., fulfilling the role previously held by Barnett, now executive director.
“We look forward to working with Tony and Elisabeth as fellow directors of the national board of the BAC. Please join me in congratulating and welcoming them!” Barnett said.
