Canadians demand Canadian – survey reveals 91% prefer milk from Canadian farms –
new JOYYA ultrafiltered milk answers the call!
MONTREAL, Nov. 9, 2018 /CNW/ - Canada's dairy leading fluid milk and cream processor, Saputo launches JOYYA ultrafiltered milk, a proudly all-Canadian dairy product and next step in the superfood movement. JOYYA ultrafiltered milk challenges the long-standing status quo of regular milk, serving up to 16g of protein per 250ml serving. It's produced in Canada, by Canadians for Canadians, and offers 75 per cent more protein and 25 per cent less lactose (sugar) than regular milk.
A staple for as long as we can remember, regular milk has recently been challenged by trendy plant-based alternatives like never-before. In light of this, you may be wondering if Canadians are still drinking regular milk. To understand Canadians' milk consumption habits and preferences, Saputo commissioned a nation-wide survey with Maru/Blue* to answer the question.
Milk Mania is Alive and Well
Despite the rise of milk-alternative trends and a very cluttered "dairy" aisle, the survey discovered Canadians are still fiercely dedicated to milk, revealing that 87 per cent of Canadians still drink or cook with milk regularly and 40 per cent consume it daily.
More Milk Mania Findings:
- 43 per cent of Canadians choose milk for its protein
- And almost one third of Canadian (27 per cent) wish milk had more protein
- The biggest reason for trying milk alternatives was curiosity but over a quarter of Canadians were seeking an added source of protein, even though most common plant-based milk alternatives have less than 3g of protein per 250ml serving
- While more than half of Canadians have tried milk alternatives in the last five years, 75 per cent came back to regular milk
- Canadians are very loyal to dairy farmers, 91 per cent of people surveyed want to purchase milk produce on Canadian farms
- Canadians love milk in many ways: half of milk drinkers enjoy it by the glass
- 72 percent consume it with cereal, and just over half add it to coffee or tea
Saputo is ready to answer the call with a 100% Canadian milk solution: JOYYA ultrafiltered milk.
A Fresh Innovation
Two years in the making, JOYYA ultrafiltered milk speaks to Canadian consumer demands and provides a simple solution to help fuel their day with a little extra joy. "JOYYA ultrafiltered milk is more than milk, it is "ultramilk''. It's a simple choice that's packed with unique and quantifiable benefits," says Kim-Tuan Nguyen Vice-President, Saputo Strategic Business Development for Fluid, Bottling & Culture products. "We know Canadians crave more out of life, and therefore expect more from their milk. By adding a new premium product to the milk category, JOYYA ultrafiltered milk is providing more of the good and making dairy relevant again."
Feel the JOYYA
A new milk category, JOYYA ultrafiltered milk contains no artificial flavours or colours and is made from 100% Canadian milk. Like all milk produced in Canada, it is also hormone and additive free. It's ultrasimple: JOYYA ultrafiltered milk takes fresh Canadian milk and passes it through a series of specialized filters. This separates the milk components to concentrate the nutrients already found in milk, such as protein and calcium, while reducing the lactose (the naturally occurring sugar in milk). Different from regular milk, JOYYA ultrafiltered milk also offers extended freshness. When unopened and refrigerated, JOYYA ultrafiltered milk stays fresh for up to 120 days from the production date. Once opened, it is recommended that JOYYA ultrafiltered milk be enjoyed within 14 days. JOYYA ultrafiltered milk is packaged in a special 1-litre PET ergonomic bottle for easy pouring, long lasting freshness and portability!
