Our History

Riviera has made European refinement the hallmark of its near-century old company.

1920

Maison Riviera’s earliest activities go back almost 100 years in Sorel-Tracy. Joined by her husband Napoleon Chalifoux, Alexandrina Pelletier sells her herd’s surplus milk to villagers.

1945

The small family business grows, and their son Jean-Paul Chalifoux is one of the first to obtain a pasteurization licence and the right to source milk from farms in his region.

1948

Products are sold from a horse-drawn cart.

1959

The dairy company creates its famous Riviera Cheddar cheese, the first milestone in an ongoing success story in the art of milk processing.

1971

The company processes some four million litres of milk per year, mainly from the watershed of Lac Saint-Pierre, a region that produces a generous feed crop.

1989

The company imports European ultrafiltration technology, enabling—among other things—the production of lactose-free cheeses.

2011

Maison Riviera processes 28 million litres of milk per year. From the artisanal production of its early years, Maison Riviera and the Chalifoux family have maintained an attention to detail, an expert hand, and a connection to the land.

2015

The Petit Pot Collection stands out as soon as it is released by receiving several awards and distinctions, but also, and above all, capturing the hearts of consumers.

2017

With a desire to reaffirm its position as a trendsetter in the dairy sector, Riviera launches its new range of reduced sugar products.
