Creating a valuable legacy for all Canadians

Our commitment to quality milk is at the heart of everything we do. It’s what brings us together as Canadian dairy farmers and inspires us to take great care in every aspect of our work.

Our commitments

Producing milk that is as perfect as can be is what drives us to raise healthy cows, protect our land and resources, and ensure every glass of milk is safe and free of antibiotic residue. Every day, we work hard to ensure Canadian dairy provides an enduring and valuable legacy for all Canadians.

Respecting rigorous standards is the Canadian way

In Canada, we produce milk in accordance to strict standards and regulations. You might think it makes our work more difficult, but we think it makes it all the more worthwhile.

Looking after the land for future generations

For many Canadian dairy farmers, the land they farm and live on has been inherited from previous generations. It’s land that they have been entrusted with, which is why protecting its resources and ensuring its viability for future generations is dear to their hearts.
