Verger & Cultures Duhaime began operations in 1945 with Hector Duhaime, the grandfather of Jacques.
It is up to Leo and Madeleine, his father and mother, for giving the company a more horticultural, divesting of the dairy herd in the 60s.
It is also to Leo and Madeleine that Jacques owes his passion for continuing on with the company. Thus, Jacques took over the Verger & Cultures Duhaime in 1981. For the last ten years now, he has been leading the company to new heights by exporting high quality natural products throughout the world.
With the passion that drives him Jacques has developped an impressive quantity of unique recipes using fruit, such as deluxe spreads sweetened with organic sugar cane, spreads sweetened only with apple juice, chocolate and fruit spreads and caramels. A range of fruit spreads for cheese has meanwhile won a North American SIAL Montreal in 2007.
Our caramel line was also selected in the top 10 innovations for 2012.
In its endless quest for novelty, Jacques Duhaime has also partnered with chefs to create new products.
The excitement surrounding the Verger & Cultures Duhaime far exceeds the local environment since the craze for high-end products developed by the company is felt globally. Canada, Japan, Mexico, Europe and the U.S. are already exporting, via a network of distributors or importers, unique products created at Verger & Cultures Duhaime. The Middle East will soon be in the line of distributors to buy the Verger & Cultures Duhaime products. This global recognition of quality products from us confirms the prominence of Verger & Cultures Duhaime in the international arena.
