History[edit]

Founded by William Neilson (1844–1915) in 1893 as one of many independent dairy producers in Canada. Originally a milk retailer, Neilson switched to cream and ice cream products. His Neilson Dairy became William Neilson Limited in 1907. After the mid-20th century, many smaller companies were overtaken by larger corporations. William Neilson was sold to George Weston Limited in 1947. Neilson Dairy is now part of the Saputo empire after George Weston Limited sold the dairy unit in 2008.
