Empire Cheese


Empire Cheese Co-op is owned by local dairy farmers! It's the only cheese manufacturing plant operating in Northumberland County and the first one east of Toronto. They manufacture a wide range of cheeses, including fresh curd, cheddar and specialty, flavoured cheeses.

Empire cheese is made in the traditional way in open-style vats which gives the cheese and curd a better flavour. They use no additives to boost production and there are no flavours added to their Cheddar. It is all natural, with no preservatives added.

The cheese is vacuum-packed to preserve the special flavour. This mix of tradition and modern technology gives their customers the best product possible!
