Our Dairy Marketing Program provides support to both dairy product manufacturers and food processors. It facilitates access to the technical support and expertise required to develop new and innovative dairy and finished food products to bring them to market. Our valued partnerships with food science centres, universities, and industry associations help to reinforce our commitment to the 3 I’s:
