 A chef understands the value of high-quality ingredients to make the best food. Which is why we’ve partnered with two chefs who not only share our passion for creating delicious meals but are also changing the world by making sustainable choices in their cooking. From sourcing local ingredients to minimizing food waste, they are committed to giving back to the earth.

Canadian dairy farmers are also passionate about sustainability. One of the many ways we are helping protect the planet is through regenerative agriculture, which improves soil health and protects water resources and biodiversity.

See how two leading culinary creators and high-quality Canadian dairy products come together in these delicious, zero-waste recipes.
