At Baxter, we can trace our family tree back to 1924, when Robert W. Baxter purchased a small milk route in Saint John. He bought milk directly from local farmers, had it pasteurized and delivered it door to door using a horse and wagon.
In 1931, Mr. Baxter decided it was time to have his own milk processing plant, and Baxter Dairies Limited was born. Ever committed to quality and service, he processed and delivered fresh milk to families throughout Saint John every day.
Our family has grown considerably from those humble beginnings. We introduced our own unique ice cream and frozen treats in 1939. We added more dairies over the years, including a new processing plant on Millidge Avenue in 1962, and a dairy in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 1974. More recently, we welcomed the Dairyland brand to our family. We also joined the Saputo family, the largest dairy processor in Canada and the 12th in the world. Yet one thing hasn’t changed – we continue to serve premium-quality dairy products to you and your family every day.
Always there when you need us, our Baxter family looks forward to delivering our very best to you and yours for generations to come.
