125 Years & Going Strong
It is not often that you come across organizations that have 125 years of history and are still going strong.
Pine River Cheese is one of the last farmer-owned dairy co-operatives in Ontario and is unique in making cheese from real milk.
Pine River Cheese produces some of the finest Cheddar, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Havarti and Colby and is also one of the few cheese companies that offer three, five, seven, and eight year old Aged Cheddar in their own Premium Vat brand. Pine River Curd is an item that is growing in popularity while recent innovations include Cheese Fudge in Chocolate, Raspberry and Irish Cream flavours and specialty cheese items such as Caramelized Onion, Thai Curry and Ranch Cheddar.
Pine River Cheese is available in leading retail food chains and specialty cheese stores and is extending its distribution so the company’s products can be made available to customers across Canada. The company is also proud to be a supplier to leading food service distributors and operators and an ingredient supplier to manufacturers of cheese entrees and snacks.
The co-operative’s main strength is their dedicated and passionate team who create some of the finest cheese in Ontario. Pine River Cheese is a proud member of the Ripley / Kincardine communities and is located on a picturesque 65 acre property with Lake Huron as the backdrop.
Pine River Cheese has a factory store outlet on Highway 21 that is a regular stop for locals as well as tourists. The store is a popular summer destination when visitors to the Kincardine area stop by and see how cheese is made through the viewing gallery at the plant.
