JOSETTE LEBLOND, founder and President of Normandie Pate, Inc. has manufactured fine pates and sausages since her arrival in America in 1985. Today, Normandie, Inc has expanded into manufacturing bakery goods for airlines, grocery chains, and restaurants.
Born in Normandie, France, Josette was raised with strong work ethics. After grade school, she would help her father in the charcuterie business (delicatessen). On the weekends her father would take her to their country farm where they raised and butchered their own livestock. It was here Josette butchered her first pig at age seven. This would set the stage for the “French-American” dream which would come later.
