Meet the Keunen family in Kerwood, Ontario who are committed to producing high quality Canadian milk.
New videos show dairy farmers' commitment to producing high quality milk
MONTRÉAL, March 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) recently
launched a new website dedicated to the commitment of dairy farmers and
the quality of Canadian milk. The website, www.CanadianMilk.ca, provides information about 100% Canadian milk and includes six videos
about healthy cows, safety standards, accountability, strict
regulations, consistent quality, and innovation - all of upmost
importance to Canadian dairy farmers.
"We invite all Canadians to meet and visit some of our farmers on their
farm through these visually informative videos," says Geneviève Latour,
assistant director, marketing & nutrition communications at DFC.
"Canadian dairy farmers are very passionate and dedicated to producing
high quality Canadian milk and it is beautifully captured in these
The six videos follow three dairy farming families: the Bouwman family
from Chilliwack, British Columbia; the Keunen family from Kerwood,
Ontario; and the Irving family from Pugwash, Nova Scotia. Each family
takes viewers through their farm and shows them how they ensure quality
on their farm from how they care for their cows to how milk production
is managed in order to produce high quality Canadian milk.
"These videos clearly reiterate that Canadians can feel confident about
looking for the 100% Canadian Milk symbol and choosing dairy products
made from 100% Canadian milk," adds Ms. Latour.
Look for the Symbol
The 100% Canadian MilkTM symbol is a seal of origin that guarantees the dairy products you're
buying are made from 100% Canadian cow's milk. When you buy dairy
products made from 100% Canadian milk renowned for its quality, purity
and great taste, you're also supporting Canadian dairy farmers. Make
sure to look for the symbol on the packaging when you're picking up
dairy products like cheese, yogurt, butter, cream, and ice cream.
