A Family Tradition Since 1957!
The legacy of Rito Mints began in Trois-Rivières in 1957. Since its founding, the business has set itself apart through its products and its customer service. Today, Rito Mints is the largest manufacturer of mint candies and Conversation Hearts in the Americas.
A major fire ravaged Rito’s factory in 2018, resulting in the need for complete reconstruction. The new Rito Mints factory, still based in Trois-Rivières and now on the leading edge of technology, has quickly retaken its place as market leader. In 2019, it was awarded the “Export Leader” prize by the CQI!
For more than 60 years, the rich and unique taste of their famous peppermint lozenges have won over the palates of young and old alike.
