Ontario-Made Brand Launches Abitibi Chèvre

A newly formed company focused on developing Northern-made agricultural products has launched its first product.

O’Clay Inc., a project of the Abitibi Commons initiative, introduced Abitibi Chèvre – an artisanal goat’s milk cheese – on Dec. 14 in Iroquois Falls.

Manufactured just down the highway in Kapuskasing by Fromagerie Kapuskoise, Abitibi Chèvre is handcrafted using traditional techniques.

“We buy Mennonite goat's milk from this area – Val Gagné in particular – and then it's sent to Kapuskasing to be transformed into cheese,” said Shelley Jessup, administrative manager for Abitibi Commons, who describes it as a wholesome, high-quality cheese.
