2016 Regional Award Winner


Fromagerie Kapuskoise Inc.

Cheese lovers can now enjoy French varieties produced here in Ontario. After studying cheese-making in France, François Nadeau teamed up with his father to open a fromagerie in Kapuskasing. The Nadeaus use a unique process that creates a rich, flavourful product. The pair worked with the Dairy Farmers of Ontario to develop protocols allowing them to source milk from a single local dairy farm. The results are four cheeses that have impressed cheese retailers and consumers alike, while the single-source protocols have paved the way for a new type of terroir-driven cheese-making in Ontario.
