The Dominique-Rollin Gala celebrates businesses that have distinguished themselves over the past year. A total of 12 prizes were awarded.
"We are honoured by these prizes," said Éric Tanguay, Hygie Canada president. "They recognise our team's commitment to developing specialised products that efficiently limit de spread of bacteria in hospital settings, while delivering eco-friendly hygienic solutions that are useful at home, outdoors and while travelling."
