Canadian DIY cheese-making company offers kits, ingredients and experiences



Like many businesses, Cheese Maker not only adapted to the business restrictions brought on by COVID-19, but was able to thrive and create new revenue streams by changing some aspects of their business.

Cheesemaker.ca was started in 2018 by B.C. entrepreneur Alexis Cobham and her Ontario husband, Jeremy Bossio, as a way to connect people with food, nature and animals through the process of cheese making. Cobham hand-crafted cheese making kits to give people the opportunity to make their own cheese at home and become “urban cheesemakers.”

Trade shows were the main source of income for Cheese Maker, but when COVID-19 hit all in-person events were cancelled and they had to quickly adapt to the new rules. They redesigned their online store and started promoting on social media and began offering virtual cheesemaking events to local and international corporations as a means of creating team-building experiences.

Along with selling online and offering virtual events as the new normal Cheese Maker is scheduled to attend Craft Circle (Vancouver), One-of-A-Kind Craft Fair (Ontario), Signatures Butterdome Craft fair (Alberta), Art Market (Alberta) and Signatures Ottawa show (Ontario).
