Programs Supporting Innovation
The Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) is committed to promoting growth and innovation in the manufacture and use of dairy products and components.
As part of its dairy marketing initiatives, the CDC offers important programs which provide support to both dairy product manufacturers and food processors.
- The Matching Investment Fund (MIF) is designed to help eligible companies and Food Technology Centres (FTC) with product development initiatives that help stimulate demand for Canadian dairy products and ingredients.
- The Dairy Innovation Program (DIP) was created to provide access to additional milk volume and encourage product development to help grow the market for Canadian milk and milk products.
- The Milk Access for Growth (MAG) program guarantees a sufficient supply of milk (whole or skim) to manufacture products that will grow total market demand.
