Experience a world of discoveries at the Centre de l'Émeu de Charlevoix (CEC), where exoticism and traditions meet!
On her native land of Saint-Urbain, Raymonde Tremblay manages the largest emu farm in Canada with over 400 head. From breeding to processing and marketing, the CEC integrates all the spheres of the business.
Since its foundation in 1997, CEC has been raising emus without antibiotics or hormones in a healthy and respectful environment. Its unique process for producing 100% emu oil and extra-lean red meat is the result of many years of research.
While it may seem surprising to see emus on Charlevoix land, the use of animal fat is well established in the region's tradition. In the glorious days of beluga fishing in the 18th and 19th centuries, their fat was recovered and used mainly to light oil lamps.
Take a guided or self-guided tour and enjoy an experience that will allow you to see the emus up close, learn about the exceptional history of this company and its owner, and appreciate the products, both beauty and cosmetic products as well as culinary products. All this on a site set in the enchanting Charlevoix region.
Centre de l’Émeu offers a wide range of body care and gourmet products. Emu oil, renowned for its exceptional properties and processed to high standards, is available in moisturizers, soaps, scrubs, shampoos, cleansing milks, and much more. CEC has also developed emu meat products for cooking, ready-to-eat meals, cold cuts, pâtés and terrines, sauces and more.
