Everything you need to know about Fondussimo

A proud Quebec company

Our beginnings

But where does Fondussimo fondue set come from? It is a fondue set with perforated baskets designed by inventor Dany Bernard from Beauce.

An industrial designer, machinist, welder and industrial mechanic, the would-be entrepreneur had the perfect background to offer the new way to enjoy fondue with perforated stainless-steel baskets. He had always dreamed of developing a true innovation. He brought his very first batch of Fondussimo fondue sets to market in 2018, just months after the birth of his son, Thomas.

The new father quickly discovered the implications of his business project and rolled up his sleeves to overcome all the challenges: intellectual property, financing, production, local and international shipping, online sales, inventory management, marketing in all its forms, customer service…just to name a few

Spectactular growth

After the first production batch sold out quickly, and in order to offer the best fondue experience possible, Dany collected feedback from users to improve his fondue set once again.

In just a few months, Dany and his team have managed to sell out all available units from the second version of the Fondussimo fondue set. The team views this as a total market validation of the perforated basket concept. “My fondue set can be used to cook traditional fondue meat, but also ramen, peas, mussels or slices of corn,” says the founder of Fondussimo. “Fondussimo means ‘more than fondue.’ And every day, we prove how true that is!” 

Involved with the company since 2019 as a creator and culinary consultant, businesswoman Héloïse Leclerc joined the ranks of the company as Director of Communications, Marketing and Culinary Innovation in early 2022. “Fondussimo is in the process of achieving a true fondue revolution and I am proud to be a part of it.” 

Among the great culinary brands

In just a few years, Fondussimo has established itself as a trusted brand that maintains a special relationship with families who have given it a warm welcome at their tables. 

As a great Quebec success sotry, Fondussimo is now opening markets in other regions in Canada and the United States, where an ever-increasing number of fondue enthusiasts are answering the call of reinvented fondue. 

The next step is to bring the whole world along in the fondue revolution!

“My advice to someone who wants to start a business? Think carefully before you start, but don’t wait for the perfect solution, because it doesn’t exist. Market hits are created by entrepreneurs who spur into action, pivot quickly and remain attentive to customer needs.”
