New Cheese Plant in Edmonton
Krinos Canada is excited to introduce a new member of the family – Tiras Dairies – a cheese plant in Camrose near Edmonton, Alberta. Town Mayor Norman Mayer and Krinos President Alexander Georgiadis, along with 45 Krinos key employees and Canadian brokers, travelled to Alberta to officially cut the ribbon and open the new facility.
Since purchasing the plant, Krinos has introduced a completely new, state-of-the-art production line that produces a wide range of domestic feta cheeses using 100% fresh Canadian milk, all the while maintaining traditional Greek processes.
Plant Manager and Master Cheese Maker Emanuel Georgandelis, makes sure of it. The seasoned cheese maker was brought from Greece to oversee the production, ensuring Krinos’ feta cheese is created with all the authentic methods of traditional Greek making. And it’s paying off.
In 2018, Krinos’ “Traditional Greek Feta” won the Canadian Cheese Award for “Best Feta in Brine”. This cheese is produced at Tiras Dairies.
And there’s more to come. Keep an eye out for new, more convenient and consumer-friendly packaging to be rolled out in the next few weeks. Plus, even more expansions to keep up with growing production.
