In less than four years of its creation, Bliss Dough is being recognized by the province for strengthening the economy by being the largest cookie dough business in Ontario.
The Guelph-based business received a Manufacturer Spotlight Award for the Inaugural Ontario Made Awards announced earlier this week.
"The Ontario Made Awards are an important piece of the Ontario Made program to help CME realize its vision of supporting and promoting Ontario-made products and strengthening our economy together. Congratulations to the award winners, said Mathew Wilson, senior vice president of policy, government relations & Ontario division at Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME).
Bliss Dough is one of four businesses to receive an Ontario Made Award this year. Other winners include Brown’s Concrete Products in Sudbury, Grey Jay Sales & Distribution in Huntsville and The Market Shoppe in Markdale.
“The success of the Ontario Made program is a direct result of your support and efforts to promote Ontario-made products and help Ontarians make informed purchasing decisions. You have become a benchmark for others in the industry to strive to match.”
According to CME, Bliss Dough is Ontario’s largest dough company, with an all-female staff. It also hopes to expand across Canada while maintaining all production in Ontario and also sourcing from local businesses.
