TINE SA is a Norwegian dairy product cooperative. The company has a long history dating back to 1928 and has seen many name changes before being given the Tine brand name in 1992. Tine was ranked the world's #1 cooperative by size by the International Cooperative Alliance in 2008.[1] The name "Tine" comes from an old Norweigan wooden container used for keeping butter and cheese fresh.[2]
