Milk Access for Growth
Background and purpose of the program
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.
The purpose of the MAG program is to encourage new investments in the dairy sector to grow the overall Canadian demand for milk and milk products. These investments include expansion and/or establishment of plants by Canadian dairy processors, further processors of food or any other products, or Canadian or foreign investors seeking to establish a business in Canada. The program may be used for new as well as existing products (dairy or other products containing dairy ingredients), with the emphasis being placed on growth.
The CDC will start to receive applications as of November 1, 2015.
