Go Cabot, it’s your birthday, and we gon’ party like it’s yo birthday! The creamery is celebrating its 100th anniversary in style, rolling out new modern-rustic packaging for its award-winning cheeses. Cabot Creamery Co-Operative's new packaging honors the company’s proud past, while looking ahead to the future.
“[It] reflects the same attention to detail that goes into making our award-winning cheeses and our farmers’ unwavering commitment to quality,” said CEO Ed Townley about the new packaging. “As we reach the next century mark, we remain focused on ensuring the next generation of family farmers are able to continue farming.”
According to the press release, after extensive research, the company was able to nail down a design that customers loved, who agreed that the new packaging makes Cabot cheeses stand out on store shelves, while keeping with the brand’s rich heritage and exceptional passion of the farmers who own the co-op.
The company started as a single butter plant in the small town of Cabot, VT, in 1919, and has grown into a creamery with products enjoyed by customers in all 50 states and over 20 countries around the globe. Owned by the dairy farm families of Agri-Mark, the Northeast’s premier dairy co-operative, Cabot has used all profits to support those farm family owners since the very beginning.
The company may be in its 100th year, but it’s far from geriatric, as it continues to rack up the awards. At the 2019 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest, Cabot won, among other awards, gold medals for its Extra Sharp Cheddar, Medium Cheddar, and unsalted butter.
“A century of quality is truly something to celebrate, and with their new packaging, the farmers are ready for the next hundred years,” said Townley.
So, here’s to the next 100 years!
