ABOUT DION HERBS & SPICES

In 1996, Gaston Dion was discouraged to see how the world of spices was dull and very conservative. This cook, looking for different flavours and new trends, but finding only conventional products, decided to start his own company. Along with Louiselle Morin and their children, Marie-Andree Morin-Dion and Samuel Morin-Dion, M. Dion sets out to surprise consumers and awake a culinary curiosity. The adventure starts with a new container. After merchandising this unique and different concept, Dion Herbs & Spices now offers 9 product categories including over 450 varieties.

Dion Herbs & Spices is now a leading herbs & spices seller in Quebec, offering the widest range of products, according to AC Neilson studies. Those are available in over 1000 retailers in Canada and the United States.
