Adam, Hannie & the van Bergeijk family operate the cheese plant in New Hamburg, Ontario. Originally from Holland, both attended the renowned cheesemaker’s school in Gouda. Although the plan for Canada was to focus on dairy farming only, some of their original cheesemaking equipment found its way into the container destined for their new homeland. In 2012, Mountainoak Cheese was built and the van Bergeijks continue the tradition of great-tasting, high-quality, award winning Gouda-style cheeses made with high-quality, fresh milk from their own dairy cows.
The Weber Family moved to Canada in 1996 to start their own dairy farm in St. Marys, Ontario. Having previously worked in the Swiss Alps, it was always their dream to produce delicious cheese reminiscent of the renowned Swiss Mountains and made from their own milk. With a profound commitment to creating cheese of the highest quality, and the support of family, as well as Ramon Eberle, a Master Cheesemaker from Switzerland, their humble dream became a reality. In order to obtain a great taste, the milk is unpasteurized and has no additives. This ensures the cheese is pure and natural.

Bright Cheese and Butter dates back to 1874 when a group of local farmers used their surplus milk to create a cheese factory with an emphasis on cheddar. By the 20th century, Bright Cheese had grown and so had the Canadian cheddar market which had become Canada's number two export and led to the establishment of 1,242 cheddar factories in Ontario. Over 140 years later they are still producing award winning cheeses at their 1800s factory in Bright Ontario.
