Following the influx of French Rabbits, we now have French cows. .. and they’re laughing too. The Laughing Cow logo is perhaps one of the best known logos to be seen in our grocery stores. Since Quebec is already world-famous for its cheeses, perhaps it’s not surprising that Fromageries Bel should announce that its fully owned subsidiary Bel Cheese Canada Inc. will begin producing The Laughing Cow wedges in Quebec under a co-packing agreement with cheese manufacturer, Fromagerie Bergeron. The Laughing Cow is perhaps better known to us here as La Vache Qui Rit.
More than $10 million will be invested over the next few years on setting up the production facility, machinery for making The Laughing Cow wedges, establishing the Bel Cheese Canada operation and marketing. Approximately 24 direct jobs will be created.
Agropur Fine Cheese Division will continue to be the sole distributor and sales partner for all The Laughing Cow and Mini Babybel product lines across Canada.
