The Central Ontario Cheesemaker Association was incorporated as a non-profit organization on August 29, 1928. The Association was founded to provide an opportunity for Cheese makers to share knowledge and techniques, in a foundling Canadian industry. The Association established the British Empire Cheese Show, which gave Cheese makers the opportunity to compete with others around the British Empire. For more information visit www.cocma.ca.
