Administrative history

The Sussex Cheese and Butter Company, of Sussex, Kings County, New Brunswick, was started in 1898 to market cheese and other dairy products from local farms. As the company grew, they expanded into ice cream and other dairy products. In 1949, this success led to the formation of a new venture, owned by the Sussex Cheese and Butter Co., called the Millstream Dairy Creamery Co. 9. Both companies were bought out in 1974 by the Barbours Dairy Ltd. Co.
