ABOUT

Thornloe Cheese has produced a respected brand of cheese products in Northern Ontario for over 71 years! Our secret to success is old-fashioned cheese making techniques and fresh milk produced in this unique agricultural area.

Thornloe Cheese is a 100% Canadian, 100% farmer-owned company. Although the product has grown tremendously from its early days, the company remains headquartered in Thornloe, Ontario, where it was formed.

In 1997, Parmalat took over the cheese making plant, and continued to produce high quality cheese products until 2006. At that time, the operation neared closure, but a group of sustainably minded farmers and Gencor came together to form a partnership and save Thornloe. At present, it continues to be co-operatively owned and run by these farmers.
