Alberta Milk represents Alberta’s dairy farmers, not our processing sector. So unfortunately, there isn’t an Alberta-only product list we can provide you as we do not manage processing of milk.

The dairy industry in Canada is highly integrated and we work with other provinces that have more processing available and potentially ship that product or components to Alberta. Remember that every single dairy farm across the province must adhere to the same high standards for milk quality and animal care.

That being said, there are three things that will help you source only Alberta dairy:

  1. The most effective way is to call the individual processor regarding the details about each of their products. Please remember that companies like Saputo may have their headquarters in Quebec (or another province), but they have local processing plants in Alberta in which use Alberta milk.

  1. Each dairy product has a processing identification number. If you look up the number, it will tell you where that product was processed.
  2. Review Alberta Agriculture’s Processing Directory.

We deeply appreciate your support for our locally produced product and the dairy industry. The most important thing is that the product is made from Canada dairy. In the recent USMCA, the Canadian government sold out Canadian dairy farms by allowing increased access to American dairy to come into Canada, eating up our local market from our family farms. This equates to Alberta losing over 30 of our farms.

By identifying that the product is Canadian, that means Canadian jobs, Canadian farmers and supporting the Canadian economy. Look for the Canadian milk quality logo to ensure you’re are supporting Canadian farmers.

You may also want to contact the Alberta Dairy Council, the organization that represents Alberta’s dairy processors. Thanks again for connecting with Alberta Milk.
