Baxter’s traces their 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. The Baxter’s family has grown considerably from those humble beginnings, introducing a unique ice cream and frozen treats, more dairies, a new processing plant, and a dairy in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. More recently, they welcomed the Dairyland brand and joined the Saputo family, the largest dairy processor in Canada and the 12th in the world. One thing hasn’t changed – Baxter’s continues to serve premium-quality dairy products to you and your family every day.
