Tree Island Yogurt
Courtenay, British Columbia
As a microbiologist and whole food enthusiast, we started Tree Island in 2012 after returning from France where we tasted artisan yogurt made with fresh, whole milk. Nothing comparable existed in BC, so we set-out to create it ourselves. Our mission is to nourish our community by strengthening the local food system and promoting land stewardship.
We are now making grass-fed, artisan yogurt at our production plant in the Comox Valley. We use 100% fresh whole BC milk, carefully select the best ingredients and handcraft our yogurt in small batches using a traditional, slow-kettle cooking method. Our mission is to nourish our community by strengthening the local food system and promoting land stewardship.
Tree Island Yogurt is handcrafted in small batches that starts with the best quality ingredients that they apply to their very own slow cooking process and use no industrial thickeners, colours or flavours. Tree Island Yogurt is now a leading independent yogurt brand in British Columbia and is recognized by consumers as the most socially and environmentally progressive dairy processor. Our brand is about the taste of place.
