A Little About Us...
For 80+ years, Kawartha Dairy has been proud to be a 100% Canadian-owned company, still operated by the same family that founded it in 1937. Although the company has grown tremendously from its early days, it remains headquartered in the lakeside community of Bobcaygeon, Ontario, where it was founded, near Peterborough, an hour – more...north of the GTA.
Today Kawartha Dairy operates 10 retail stores and services a wide range of customers, from grocery stores to food service establishments and of course, ice cream parlours. The company also provides custom production services to other food companies, using Kawartha’s expertise in the business to produce ice cream and other specialty dairy items to the exact specifications of these firms.
Reflecting the explosive growth in the brand and the business as a whole, Kawartha Dairy has recently constructed a 54,000-square-foot Distribution Centre just south of Bobcaygeon to serve its provincial operations. Investments are also underway to modernize the production plant, our systems and our infrastructure.
Kawartha Dairy is committed to growing our company culture of super-friendly staff, above-and-beyond customer service and of course creating a fabulous collection of ice cream and other products.
We at Kawartha Dairy live by our five values:
1. We are a Family
2. We Enjoy Our Work
3. We are Customer Obsessed
4. We are Small Town Canada
5. We are Extremely Proud of Our Quality – less

I highly recommend working at Kawartha Dairy, Ltd. I loved it here and the co-workers made the shift so much better. Management was really easy going and you could talk to them about anything without being judged.

Good employees poor upper management
Written by Supervisor/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) from Peterborough, ON on 5 July 2019
The job itself was amazing. Fun.. and amazingly good team. The upper management was discriminating and unfair people were wrongfully terminated... a disgusting way to run a local business. management at store level was most of the time amazing. But head office always turned a blind eye to any concerns any employees had. Toxic upper management
