Our Story

With more than 20 years of combined experience  managing companies and supporting initiatives in Canada, our co-founders discovered an opportunity to showcase the best of French culture to Canadians through various experiential opportunities.

To achieve this goal, a company was created: Best of France.

Best of France was founded with two key ideas in mind:

  • Companies and entrepreneurs deserve ongoing support and effective connections to grow in partnership with like-minded transnational organizations. Our unique offerings weave together the brilliance of French culture in one platform, establishing networking opportunities for businesses and organizations to grow internationally.

  • We have recognized a need for Canadians seeking an immersive taste into French lifestyle, discovering the best of what France has to offer.

Our Approach

We have developed three unique opportunities for Canadians to experience the Best of France. Our approach is founded on three central pillars: Our Platform, Our Gastronomy Label and our Gourmet Boxes.

We aim to help French businesses seeking to tap into the Canadian market and grow their offerings. We set up a platform dedicated to create bonds and leverage the relationships between French and Canadian professionals.

We support and showcase artisans who are the guardians of French cuisine in Canada by recognizing their hard work and providing a platform to showcase their creations.
