Expertise is a family affair!

The LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE was created in 1980 by Denis and his son, Jean-François, when they each brought five hives to their land in Saint-Sylvestre. Starting almost entirely from scratch, the two entrepreneurs would go on to eventually create Les Ruchers D.J.F Inc. (LE LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE).

They set out to produce high-quality, 100% natural honey harvested directly from the hive. From the very beginning, the company focused intently on producing the highest quality product possible. Their success is the result of the meticulous hard work of these two men, supported by their amazing wives. In fact, the company was named for Denis’s wife.

Jean-François and his wife were only too happy to chase their dreams together as a family business. Pioneers in the world of apiculture and always acutely conscientious of the environment, they gradually developed LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE.  When the brand eventually reached supermarkets, it quickly became a household name. Field production work and in-store presentations are handled by the couple’s children. The brand is woven into the close-knit family, and carries the promise of an enduring legacy.

And what was once a small family business is now Quebec’s largest independent apiary, harvesting tons of honey each year!

Why choose LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE ?

Today, LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE stands out for its superior quality. This unpasteurized honey is produced entirely in Quebec, meaning the light floral notes you’ll find in this honey can’t be reproduced anywhere else in the world!

LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE gives you the old-fashioned flavors you love and highest possible standard of food safety using advanced technology and unparalleled expertise. Jean-François is a leading figure in the world of apiculture. Their business is founded on the expertise and extensive knowledge that he and his wife pour into each and every delicious drop.

LE MIEL D’ÉMILIE is now a respected leader in great tasting products.
