About The Fern Group

The Fern Group Inc. is one of the leading Home Fragrance program developers and distributors within the Canadian market. Our Head Office and Distribution Centre are located in North York, Ontario.

Being founded in 1962, the company has developed National Distribution across all areas of the retail market – general merchandise retailers, mass retailers, drug, and discount stores – with one goal in mind, to provide Canadians with high quality Home Fragrance and Home Décor programs, while holding ourselves to the highest standards of quality, customer service, and reliability.

With our winning combination of experienced team members and longevity in the industry, The Fern Group Inc. has grown into an industry leader, specializing in global sourcing, distribution as well as store brand/private label program development. 

Our extensive product line is developed and manufactured with our long-term partner factories located in Asia, the United States, and Canada. All of our partners regularly pass our client’s required Factory Audits providing reports such as SMETA, BSCI etc.

Logistics & Inventory

Distribution Centre

Located in North York, Ontario close to all major 400 highways, our almost 50,000 square foot distribution facility allows us to effectively manage inventory levels and satisfy our clients requirements quickly and reliably

Direct Import Program

We also provide our clients with the option to purchase their program as a Direct Import program (FOB port) if preferred

We can source and develop their program with our partner factories and deliver to their FOB port within the sourcing country

Inventory Management

Working in partnership with our clients, we are able to project future inventory requirements and make commitments to our partner factories to ensure goods are on hand when needed

This allows our clients to pull inventory on demand which in turn assists them in optimizing their inventory management systems while minimizing their capital investment required

Based on forecasts confirmed with our clients, we commit a significant amount of capital investment in the form of our client’s inventory that held in our North York, ON Distribution Centre

This allows us to minimize any potential out of stock situations during the life of a client’s program


With our strong sourcing capabilities across different continents, we have been able to establish enduring partnerships with our freight forwarders

This allows us to effectively manage our inventory transport systems by employing optimal container utilization rates to reduce overall freight costs
