Gay Lea Foods began in 1958 when a group of farmers in Canada came together to build a better future not just for themselves but for their communities. Today, the company is one of the leading co-operatives in Canada.

Today, the co-operative has members on over 1,300 dairy farms in Manitoba and Ontario and around 4,000 producers and shareholders. The company is committed to innovation and developing high-quality products that respond to the evolving demands of Canadian consumers. Despite the growth and changes in demand, Gay Lea Foods remains a dairy co-operative that is owned by Canadian dairy farmers.
