Food Manufacturers (Classes 5a, b, c)
The Special Milk Class Permit Program (SMCPP) was created by the Canadian Milk Supply Management Committee (CMSMC) in 1995. The Canadian Dairy Commission is authorized by the CMSMC to carry out the administrative requirements associated with this Program.
The main objective of the SMCPP is to provide eligible further processors and animal feed manufacturers with the means to access Canadian manufactured dairy ingredients, at prices that will allow them to remain competitive in the marketplace.
Under the SMCPP, you are considered a further processor if your business uses Canadian dairy ingredients to manufacture a finished food product in Canada which is not subject to Tariff Rate Quota (import controls) and which meets the eligibility criteria of the SMCPP.
