Our History
Aurora Meat and Cheese initially opened its doors at 3661 Dixie Rd in Mississauga to the community on May 12, 1977. Owner and founder, Domenico Vincenzo Cristiano and his wife Domenica created this family owned business and were proud to have their three children, Mike, Tom and Pina, help in the business. With the support of loyal staff and dedicated customers Aurora Meat and Cheese has been a successful business since 1957. Domenico had a passion for life and was highly respected for his ability to satisfy customers and exceeding their expectations was his top priority. He was committed to serving customers with the freshest quality meats and cheeses, together with great value and a high level of service.

Domenico was the fourth generation of butchers from Ferrandina, Matera Italy. He immigrated to Canada in 1955 where he began work as a butcher and his experience and dedication to the trade made him very respected throughout the city. Prior to opening the Mississauga store, Domenico began his first owned and operated meat shop in 1957 on College Street in Toronto. Macelleria Aurora was where he began to realize his vision of creating a traditional Italian butcher shop in Canada. In 1969, the Cristiano family bought a home in Mississauga. Domenico was a very savvy and innovative businessman. His passion for his trade and the dedication to his family encouraged him to open a second fresh meat shop in Mississauga. Mississauga was fast becoming a metropolitan city and there was a great business opportunity to open a fresh, quality meat shop in the city. On May 12, 1977 Domenico opened Aurora Meat and Cheese at 3661 Dixie Road. In 1978, the College Street store was sold and Domenico focused his efforts on developing the best fresh quality and traditional Italian meat shop in Mississauga. Aurora became famous for its traditional fresh Italian sausage, Barese sausage, dry cured sausage, sopressata, capicollo and prosciutto. Customers would travel from outside the city to enjoy our merchandise. They loved the service and quality products they received with every visit.

Sons Mike and Tom and daughter Pina continued to help grow the family business. In 1992, son in law Ignazio Caruso joined the family business. In 1999, The Cristiano Family purchased property at the north corner of Dixie and Burnhamthorpe. Plans and development were underway to have the land developed for an exciting store expansion.

Domenico, Domenica, their three children and their families began the development process of the expansion in 2000. Aurora Meat and Cheese was excited to expand its product assortment to its valued customers while still maintaining its quality meats and products, premium service and fair pricing in an inviting atmosphere. These were Domenico and his family’s dreams for the future of Aurora Meat and Cheese. Domenico made great contributions to the planning process for this expansion and he was excited to see his dreams being fulfilled. On April 15, 2003 Domenico Vincenzo passed away before the expansion was completed. Domenico will be greatly remembered for his passion for life, his dedication to his family and business, the respect of his friends and the community, his help in the community and his love for the cottage. Domenico’s dream lives on through his wife, children, grandchildren.

On November 1, 2006 Phase 1 of the store expansion was complete and the new Aurora Meat and Cheese opened its doors to the community. Family and staff continued to maintain quality meats and products, optimal service and dedication to its valued customers, and our customers were excited about the new expansion. Further expansion was under development and on November 12, 2007, the last finishing touches to Phase 2 were complete and the newly developed Aurora Meat and Cheese was revealed to the public. Aurora Meat and Cheese is fulfilling the visions that Domenico, Domenica, children, Mike, Tom, Pina and spouses Zdenka, Joanne, Ignazio and grandchildren had for the store. The Aurora family and staff value its loyal customers and hold true to Domenico’s aspirations and spirit to make Aurora Meat and Cheese a family owned business we can be proud of for generations to come.

We would like to thank our valued and committed staff and to express to our loyal customers a heartfelt thank you and we look forward to continuing to service your family needs for years to come. Your satisfaction continues to be our success.

Thank you from the Family and Staff of Aurora Meat and Cheese.
