VANCOUVER - Canadian cheese lovers can rejoice. A&W Food Services of Canada will be the first national burger chain to eliminate all processed cheese and serve real Cheddar cheese, made without artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives. As of October 1, 2018, instead of processed cheese, all A&W menu items featuring cheese will be crafted with real cheese, made using 100% Canadian milk.

"Year-after-year A&W has made substantial changes to meet the needs of our guests. What's better than a Teen Burger topped with real Canadian Cheddar?" said Susan Senecal, A&W Canada's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that sourcing simple, great-tasting ingredients, farmed with care is the right thing to do. Serving real cheese instead of processed cheese was the logical, and delicious, next step."
A&W is proud to support dairy farmers and master cheesemakers across the country. All of A&W's cheeses (Cheddar, Mozzarella, Jalapeno Monterey Jack and cheese curds) are made in Canada. Whether you're ordering a classic Teen Burger, Bacon & Egger for breakfast, or a bowl of poutine topped with gooey cheese curds, A&W guarantees they'll be served with real, Canadian cheese.
