Our Story

Black Diamond® has been in Canadian Homes for over 85 years.

With a commitment to tradition and quality, Black Diamond® is a trusted, Canadian brand.

Black Diamond® creates a variety of wholesome cheese products that are beyond delicious for the entire family.

Master cheese makers since 1933.

Founded by Robert F. Hart, Black Diamond® has been satisfying cheese cravings since 1933. Historically, cheese was dipped into hot wax to keep fresh during aging. Upon contact with the rind, the wax would turn black. With a diamond among cheese for flavour and a black rind, the name Black Diamond® was born.

Today, Black Diamond® Cheese Makers continue to make cheese with the same level of detail and care to deliver delicious, high quality cheese  to Canadians.

Our commitment for years to come.

Lactalis Canada, the parent company of Black Diamond®, is a founding sponsor and proud supporter of Kids Help Phone, Canada’s only free 24/7 counselling and information service for children and youth since 1989.
