Like bread, Montreal cream cheese Liberty originated from Jewish immigrant communities in Eastern Europe.

It was one of the first products sold by the company founded by the Kaborovsky family, a Jewish family of Russian origin, in Montreal in 1936.

It was the Statue of Liberty that inspired the Kaborovsky family when it came time to name Dairy Products, first Liberty Dairy Products, then Liberty.

Liberté has since diversified its offerings with yoghurts of all kinds in particular. Yoplait acquired the company in 2010, then the multinational General Mills took control last December.
