45 years of know-how, a start-up by heart

Like many of us, we have taken on several identities since 1971. That’s the year we stirred our first pot of yogurt, amazingly on the site where we still exist today.

We’re proud of where we come from and can’t wait for what’s to come.

1980’s – We were the first Canadian yogurt company to establish a truly national brand. To this day, we’re still the only one.

 

1993 – Ultima Foods Inc. is born. Agropur and Agrifoods combine their yogurt manufacturing and marketing operations in Canada to create this new company.

Ultima Foods launches its R&D Department at the Granby plant, with just two employees. Times have changed. Today the department now has more than 25 people in Granby and Delta, British Columbia, and is one of the biggest R&D operations in the Canadian food industry. Our R&D team works day in and day out with a singular focus: to develop the yogurt innovations of tomorrow

2004 – Ultima Foods acquires Olympic Dairy, a manufacturer of natural cultured yogurt, organic and soy products located in Delta, BC.

2012 – Ultima Foods creates and launches iögo, its own100% Canadian yogurt brand.

We revamp our logo, redefine our mission and, with the launching of our own brand next to Olympic, get ready to write a new chapter in Ultima Foods’ history.

 

Today… we continue to lead the industry and grow the yogurt culture in this country. Our brands are known, trusted, and loved, all across Canada. And we think it’s a love story that is just beginning.

Our future holds big things…
