GUSTA: 100% vegan!

At GUSTA, we’re passionate about vegan food and the environment. Our mission is to make the planet discover delicious foods that are good for, for everyone … and, well, for the planet (obviously). We also make sure to have fun when we’re doing it!

Sylvain Karpinski | CEO

Foodie, driven by vegan causes and passionate about entrepreneurship, Sylvain founded GUSTA with the idea of ​​creating a socially minded business at the cutting edge of good business practices. Polyglot, traveller and humanist, he likes good beer and joking around.

Inès Schmidt | Marketing Director

Unmatched strategist with a global vision, Inès is the “Frenchiest” member of our team. She’s travelled a lot, is fearless and likes to challenge herself. Warning: her humour and joie-de-vivre are contagious. To find out more, send her a quick email.

Jean-François Gagné | Logistics Manager

King of the underground dance floors of Quebec’s metropolis, Jeffo handles our supply chain with an iron fist and ensures that our sausages reach their destination. He proudly wears his GUSTA cap and loves to eat raw garlic cloves: he says it’s good for the complexion.

Christelle Maître | Operations director

Gentle but very effective, Christelle has a lot of experience behind the tie, between production management, factory management and control of the quality of processes and products, Christelle is our full moon when the sky is clear.

Francis Lavoie | VP of sales

Between football, soccer and mountain biking, Francis likes the thrill. He controls the sales of the company with an iron fist in a velvet glove, breathing a fresh and dynamic wind to the whole team.

Philippe Haumesser | CFO

He could have won Roland-Garros, but he preferred to manage listed companies finances. Back in the world of SMEs, Philippe has the foresight of a lone old wolf and the agility of a boreal otter. Besides, he’s pretty cool and funny.

Our mission

We make tasty and easy-to-cook vegan products to promote plant-based foods that contribute to making a better world.
