It’s all about
We take great pride in being part of your everyday life. Learn how that came to be.
We are the Mondoux family, proud purveyors of joy and peerless providers of sweets.
For three generations, we have lived by our belief in the joy of sharing every bite. It all started with a big dream and a little storage space in the garage of the company’s iconic founder, “Papi” Mondoux. Nurtured by passion and determination, the dream grew into one of the largest candy distributors in the country. Nowadays, we carry more than 3000 products and serve a broad customer base with 200 employees and facilities totalling more than 175,000 sq. ft.
Normand “Papi” Mondoux launches his candy sales and distribution business.
1975 and 1982
The founder’s flame soon spreads to other Mondoux family members. His two sons, Jean and Yvan, join the company as sales representatives. Always the innovators, the two brothers bring a new product to market: their famed Surprise Bag.
To keep up with major growth, Mondoux Confectionery moves to a new 30,000 sq. ft. facility.
In 1995, Mondoux starts to import products, mainly from Spain, Belgium, Brazil and the USA. This allows the company to offer a wider array of unique top-quality products.
In a milestone year for its distribution operations, Mondoux becomes the largest candy distribution network in Quebec. Having outgrown its facilities, the company doubles its surface area to 60,000 sq.ft. That year, Mondoux also decides to market products under its own brand name.
The Mondoux brothers decide to broaden the business by acquiring Bonbons St-Gérard, as well as Giacomo, maker of delicious Easter chocolates beloved by thousands in Quebec. These acquisitions mark a turning point in the company’s history, as it enters into manufacturing in addition to packaging and distributing.
Mondoux Confectionery acquires Yoma, a small Belgian-style craft chocolate maker based in Lac-Etchemin… a prize catch!
Company president Jean Mondoux comes up with a concept for a mix of 16 different candies. It would prove to be a smart move. A decade later, that product would be the company’s best-seller!
Product distribution is now handled by a team of more than 50 distributors throughout Quebec, the Maritimes, Ontario, Western Canada and Nunavut.
Our 50th anniversary!
The Mondoux story begins a new chapter as a third generation of family members enters the company’s management team. This year also brings an image make-over for the Sweet Sixteen brand, which enjoys unprecedented appeal among consumers.
