Mr. David Beaudoin, “The Squeaky Cheese Guy”
Born and raised in Québec City, David Beaudoin has always been a cheese lover. As a young man, he travelled the world while working as an entertainer on Cruise Ships, this enabled David to taste cheeses from around the globe. David moved to the Okanagan in 2005, where he turned his passion for cheese into an enterprise and launched his Squeaky Cheese TM and business.
After 5 years of successfully building his Squeaky Cheese business, David decided to take on the lead role for one of the oldest cheese factories in British Columbia. During the next five years, working and learning with one of the country’s cheese masters, his knowledge and passion for cheese reached a whole new level. With a thorough understanding of the industry, he now shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for making, tasting and enjoying cheeses of all kinds. Dubbed ‘The Cheese Poet’ and known locally as ‘The Squeaky Cheese Guy,’ he also works as a cheese expert and consultant with the Dairy Farmers of Canada. Additionally, David educates many retailers to understand the benefits of cheese and provides advice on recommended handling practices with cheese.
Proud to be Canadian, David will both educate and entertain as he introduces you to amazing world class Canadian cheeses.
Come meet ‘The Cheese Poet’ and be part of this wonderful cheese experience!
