There's a lot that goes into the dairy your family enjoys on a daily basis. It starts with the farmers and their commitment to producing quality milk, and continues right up until their milk is on your table.
Ontario dairy farmers know that when you put your name on something, it means something. Not just about the dairy they produce, but about their families, their community, their animals, and their values. Quality dairy is crafted by generations of farming families who give 100% every day.
Everyone knows dairy milk comes from cows. But there are some important steps between the farm and your fridge. Here's how it all happens.
Making sure the milk Ontario families drink is of the highest quality is a big responsibility. It's something Ontario dairy farmers are committed to, and it's reflected in every aspect of what they do.
You can support Canadian dairy by buying Canadian dairy products at the grocery store. The Canadian dairy system is designed to minimize waste and help support some of the highest milk quality standards in the world. When you buy Canadian dairy, you know you’re getting milk made by real farm families who are dedicated to producing milk of the highest quality.
The Canadian dairy industry is the backbone of Canada’s rural economy, employing more than 220,000 Canadians. Canadian dairy is safe and nutritious, and Canadian dairy farmers take pride in producing high-quality 100 per cent Canadian milk, providing top-notch animal care, and committing to environmental sustainability.
Look for one of two 100 per cent Canadian milk logos on the packaging of dairy products. Please note, not all 100 per cent Canadian dairy products have these logos on their packaging. If you’re unsure, you can contact processors directly to ask about their products. Packaging on Canadian dairy products usually includes the processor name and location.
