The milk we grew up on.

The history from 1900, to today

It all began in the spring of 1900 in the village of Scotsburn, Nova Scotia, when a group of local farmers had the idea to turn a ready supply of milk into butter for their community. And with this joint effort, the Scotsburn Creamery was officially founded.

Now over a hundred years later, this once-modest village creamery has expanded by adding facilities in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and to include milk, cream, buttermilk, cottage cheese, sour cream, butter and holiday nog .

And it didn’t stop there. In 2014, Saputo took over the production of these products and incorporated even more innovative ways to produce the best quality dairy products for Atlantic Canadians. At Saputo, we take great pride in our product and a special pride serving the milk our region has grown up on.
