Our story.

BC’s dairy farmers have been working hard to bring high-quality dairy to kitchens across the province for generations. And, here at BC Dairy, we work to bridge the gap from farm to table – strengthening connections between you and the people making the food you love.

For us, that means showcasing the pride that our farmers feel in providing for their community, promoting the values they share with consumers (like safety and quality), and highlighting just how they’re taking care of BC for future generations.

At the end of the day, we exist to make sure that good, honest work, and delicious, nutritious dairy from BC will always have a seat at the table. Cheers.
