Dairy Farmers of Canada Staff

On January 1, 2017, the Alberta Milk nutrition educators and marketing coordinator joined the team at Dairy Farmers of Canada. DFC is a national non-profit organization run by and for Canadian dairy farmers. As stewards of a critical component of our food supply, dairy producers have an inherent interest in ensuring that Canadians appreciate the natural goodness, safety and high quality of Canadian milk. Our nutrition programs, resources and services remain the same. You will still find us at the Alberta Milk office. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Nutrition Staff

DFC employs registered dietitians in Alberta to help Canadians maintain and adopt healthful eating and lifestyle practices. As registered dietitians we are credible, balanced and science-based. We belong to the College of Dietitians of Alberta and follow their Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. Our job is to translate the complex science of nutrition into practical advice for the general population. It is our view that milk and milk products are an important part of a healthy, balanced diet based on the four food groups, which is supported by health organizations such as Health Canada and Dietitians of Canada.
