Emu Dundee was founded in 1997 by Jocelyne Brisson and Gabriel Melançon as a result of their shared passion for animal breeding and natural products. The co-founders are both from families who operated dairy farms in Témiscamingue in North-West Quebec. Jocelyne Brisson was the first woman to import and breed these exotic birds. Her determination and courage and Gabriel Melançon’s keen business savvy allowed them to develop the business in a sustainable way, turning it into a dynamic and renowned company while retaining the human aspect.
After building up years of expertise in emu breeding, the co-founders set up their premises and laboratories in Saint-Eustache (north of Montreal) so they could concentrate exclusively on processing emu oil and developing a product range that showcases its benefits. Emu fat is sourced from breeders in several regions, processed according to refining standards in state-of-the-art facilities and the end product is tested to ensure consistent high quality.
Emu Dundee was a trailblazer in the field of natural health products and dermocosmetics and the benefits of emu oil are showcased in every product.
After consulting a team of experts in the field of manufacturing processes, we have contracted the services of a quality controller and acquired an operating licence. This ensures the quality of our products while respecting the standards established by Health Canada.
Emu oil is much more than a cosmetic product. Over the years, we have learned about its range of benefits. Recent research on the components of emu oil has shown that its properties can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore skin elasticity. This is why we combine emu oil with other hydrating products for optimum effectiveness. Our products are primarily made up of high-performance natural agents and each individual ingredient is listed on the product label.
A visionary business that became a mentor
Our wide range of products is sold online and in over 2,500 stores. Emu Dundee also benefits from a solid reputation among consumers for quality products and excellent production methods. Our team of professionals who are passionate about natural products and cosmetics are experts in quality control, packaging and labelling. We now offer smaller businesses the opportunity to manufacture their high-quality health and cosmetic products in our laboratory so they can benefit from our experience and support. Emu Dundee has become a consultant and expert in the field.
