The large national pizza chain promises to deliver dairy goodness
TORONTO, Oct. 15, 2014 /CNW/ - Domino's Pizza of Canada, based out of Leamington, Ontario, today announced a major partnership with Dairy Farmers of Canada by committing to using only cheese made from 100% Canadian milk on all its pizzas and other menu items. Domino's is the first national pizza company in Canada to have made this commitment.
"Domino's decision to only use cheese made from 100% Canadian milk is a natural one," said Michael Curran, president of Domino's Pizza of Canada. "Domino's is a strong believer in fresh, high quality and local products and is a proud supporter of Canadian dairy farmers."
Domino's commitment will have a positive impact on the Canadian dairy industry since the pizza company purchases over 4.8 million kg of cheese each year for use in its menu items.
"We are proud that Domino's has made this commitment to our Canadian dairy farmers," said Wally Smith, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada. "Canada has some of the greatest cheeses in the world, and with good reason, since its main ingredient, 100% Canadian milk, is renowned for its high quality, purity and great taste."
Canadians will now see the 100% Canadian milk symbol on all Domino's menus, pizza boxes and on its website at www.dominos.ca.
