About Saputo


Founded in 1954 by Lino Saputo and his parents in Montreal, with only $500 for equipment and a bicycle for deliveries, Saputo has since grown to become the largest dairy processor in Canada. We produce, market and distribute a wide array of products of the utmost quality, including cheese, fluid milk, yogurt and dairy ingredients.

We market dairy products to the foodservice, retail and industrial segments. Our customers and consumers are the ones who drive our business forward and our objective is to continue to establish long-term relations with them. We serve customers in over 40 countries, innovate to meet their needs, offer a wide product mix, and maximize our distribution channels resulting in improved logistics.
Our sales teams follow market trends and collaborate with other teams across the Company on new product introductions, product line extensions and targeted marketing activities.

Furthermore, we provide specialized tailored service to our customers and continue to improve our leadership position in the specialty cheese category. We offer solutions towards category management and distribution and will continue to pursue products and packaging innovation, capitalizing on evolving consumer trends and preferences.
