The Dairy Processors Association of Canada (DPAC-ATLC) joins its voice to that of Canadian dairy producers in celebrating World Milk Day.

Ottawa, June 1, 2016

The Dairy Processors Association of Canada (DPAC-ATLC) joins its voice to that of Canadian dairy producers in celebrating World Milk Day.
 
Annually, processors across Canada transform about eight (8) Billion liters of raw milk into the high quality, cheeses, yoghurt, butter, ice cream, cartons of milk and many other products that Canadians enjoy.
 
“To put it in perspective, processors across Canada purchase the equivalent of some 371,000 tanker trucks of Canadian milk annually, the totality of the domestic production, which is transformed into quality products Canadians can find on the shelves of their grocery stores. This is only made possible through the hard work of both producers and processors” said Jacques Lefebvre, President and CEO of DPAC-ATLC.
 
The dairy processing sector in Canada creates jobs for over 23,000 families across the country and supports milk production of some 12,000 dairy farms, here at home.
 
Combined, the dairy producing and processing sectors generates nearly $18 billion a year to Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
