Combining Traditional Recipes and Modern Cheese Production
Created in 1908 from a vision held by several local farmers, a cheese factory was set into operation. Today, Millbank Cheese still uses traditional recipes and local dairy suppliers to create the cheese it’s known for.
In 1908 local farmers were looking for a way to use the surplus of milk from their dairy operations and thus Millbank Cheese was born.
In 1972, Millbank Cheese became the first Canadian factory to have an automated cheese-maker, imported from Europe. This “cheddar master” did it all: it stirred the cheese curd; it sliced, matted, and turned the cheddar slabs; and then it milled the cheddar slabs into curds, which could be sold as curds or pressed into cheese blocks.
Today, the Millbank Cheese & Cold Storage Inc. factory has evolved to include a new vision and new business activities.The factory outlet store reopened in 2003 and sells a wide variety of cheese and dairy products and other fine foods.
To provide high quality food to our customers and to support the local economy. Using our traditional recipes we work with a local company to continue the tradition of making the cheese we are both proud of and love eating.
