Did you know that St-Albert Cheese Coop is one of the oldest cooperatives in Canada? As early as the late 19th century, master cheesemakers in a charming Eastern Ontario village were already producing a high quality Cheddar: the St-Albert. Founding President Louis Génier and his nine partners could hardly have imagined back on January 8, 1894, that their little cheese factory would shape the history of the entire community and become a true regional institution.
Every day, 7 days a week, dozens of employees come to work at the St. Albert factory to make your favorite cheese. Production of fresh cheese is a process that lasts between 5 and 7 hours, depending on the type of cheese (curds or blocks).
