Administrative history

The Victoria Cheese and Butter Manufacturing Association opened in 1905 on Lot 4, Concession 11 in Hungerford Township, Hastings County. The various officers operated the joint-stock corporation continuously until 1963.

The first President of the Victoria Cheese and Butter Manufacturing Company was Robert Sayers (1901 – 1904). His successors are as follows:


  • William Gordon (1905 – 1911)
  • Joseph Bateman (1913)
  • Herbert Sayers (1913 – 1922)
  • Wesley Bodgely (1922 – 1925)
  • S. McRea (1926 – 1929)
  • Clarence Graham (1930 – 1932)
  • W. E. Bateman (1933 – 1942).

The company ceased operations in 1963 because of a lapse in their insurance coverage, and the stakeholders were reimbursed.
