For over 80 years, the Bergerons have been producing high-quality cheese using milk supplied by local farmers. Although the cheese factory has been passed down through generations of Bergerons, one thing has stayed the same: the passion and care that goes into every bite.

Fromagerie Bergeron, founded in 1989, brings the Bergeron expertise into the future. Starting with the original Dutch recipe for Gouda, they developed a unique and distinctive “Bergeron’’ taste and quickly established themselves as the Canadian Gouda Masters.

Inspired by the success of the Bergeron Classique Gouda, the family took their innovation further. They created a cheese made with partially skimmed milk, a cumin-flavoured cheese, a naturally-smoked cheese and even a washed-rind cheese, the acclaimed Fin Renard. Today, the fourth generation of Bergeron’s are continuing the legacy of Fromagerie Bergeron, with innovative recipes like Le Bergeron Classique Smoked Light Cheese-Stuffed Brochettes, a delicious addition to your family dinners!

Le Bergeron Classique Smoked Light is a smoked firm ripened cheese made with partly skimmed pasteurized cow’s milk and a chestnut-coloured, edible rind. Cold-smoked over natural wood, Le Bergeron Classique Smoked Light is lactose-free and has a roasted, well-balanced flavour that doesn’t overwhelm the slight tanginess of the cheese. Le Bergeron Classique Smoked Light pairs perfectly with apples in a unique and tasty grilled cheese and works as a delightful finish to any meal. Invite the Bergerons over for dinner!
