Bright Cheese & Butter was established in 1874 by a group of local farmers who realized they had a surplus of milk each month from their livestock. Since then, not much has changed. By the turn of the twentieth century, cheddar had become Canada’s second largest export and there were 1,242 cheddar factories in Ontario.
Bright Cheese is the oldest remaining cheddar factory in Canada. They haven’t even moved… They’re in their original location from 1874! To this day, they are still providing quality dairy to the Ontario region and are well known for their all natural, naturally-aged cheese made with 100% local milk.
