Our story

The Taste of Tradition

In 1954 the Saputo family brought the secrets of Italian cheese-making to Canada. In those early years, young Lino Saputo delivered our handmade cheeses on a bicycle. While we don’t deliver cheese by bicycle anymore, the same artisan spirit carries on to this very day.

We still work to uphold the Italian tradition of cheesemaking for modern life. We do what’s right. Not what’s easy. Not because we choose to. But because it’s the only way we know how to.

It’s why here at Saputo we taste, approve and sign every batch of cheese before it’s sold. Because to us it’s personal. And we personally stand behind every bite, every slice, every morsel.

Our name is our reputation. Our signature is our guarantee.

If it’s not signed, it’s not Saputo.

Antonio

Being a cheesemaker requires a lot of team effort and I wouldn't have it any other way! 26 years later, our Mozzafina di Latte is still one of my favourites.

Daniel

Making cheese is a technical process, one that I have been practicing for over 21 years. I love our Mozzarella - it's smooth and tasty!

Stéphane

After 16 years of working with a dynamic team, I can confidently say we produce some of the finest cheeses. My favourite? Definitely a classic - Cheddar.
