Canadians are looking for Canadian-made products
Canadians want products made in a more responsible way, such as Canadian milk which is subject to high quality standards from animal care to the environment. By selecting products with the Dairy Farmers of Canada seal, it’s easy to identify products that are made with 100% Canadian milk and milk ingredients.
77% of Canadians want to keep dairy Canadian
For Canadians looking to buy Canadian, the logo is a show of support for Canadian farmers and their communities. Consumer research shows that Canadians have made positive associations with the logo. When it comes to buying dairy – including milk, cream, yogurt, cheese, butter, and ice cream – shoppers want to know where and how their favourite products are made. That’s why we’ve made the logo our certification of origin.
