What is Squeaky Cheese?
Squeaky Cheese is the perfect name for young, mild cheddar, commonly known as cheese curds. As the title implies, this delectable treat ‘squeaks’ in its own special way when you chew it. Combined with its slightly salty flavor, Squeaky Cheese is a taste experience your palate won’t soon forget.
This style of cheese originated in the province of Québec in the 1960’s. At the time, local dairy farms had surplus milk, and they needed to use it for something. Cheese-making, it turned out, was the ideal solution.
All cheese is made from curdled milk, and Squeaky Cheese is no different. The main difference between cheese curds and the traditional blocks of cheddar you see in the grocery store is age and whey content.
After curdling milk to form chunks of cheese, our cheese-makers add salt to form Squeaky Cheese. To make cheddar, the remaining curds are pressed to remove excess whey, and then aged for at least 30 days. At that point, we flash freeze individual curds so chefs and cheese-lovers everywhere can serve the squeakiest, most authentic and delicious cheese curds.

A SQUEAKY CHEESE REVOLUTION
When we started Squeaky Cheese, we could have chosen to save a bundle in product costs by making it with modified milk ingredients. Instead, we use only 100% real Canadian milk to provide the purest, most authentic cheese available.
We don’t believe in cutting corners to improve the bottom line, and our customers appreciate that. And while our cheese is now made in collaboration with Bothwell Cheese in Manitoba, our goal is to bring our product to the masses across Canada and the world so everyone can experience real Squeaky Cheese.
We also want to tell the story of our cheese, and educate Canadians about everything that goes into the healthy, delicious and high-quality dairy products we’re so fortunate to enjoy.
It starts right at the dairies with cows that are treated humanely and raised without unnecessary hormones or antibiotics. It carries on through to the artisan cheese-makers who follow age-old techniques and recipes to create their distinct styles of cheese.
Our mission is all about creating awareness, and we’ll continue to pursue it in every curd, every package, and every visit to a restaurant or distributor of Squeaky Cheese.
