Dairy processors are the companies that convert raw milk into finished dairy products. These companies process more than 600 million litres of milk per year and produce a full range of dairy products, everything from milk and cream to cheese and butter and more.

The dairy processing industry makes a substantial contribution to BC’s economy. Each year, it:
  • generates almost $1 billion in revenue.
  • employs over 1,500 people.
  • supplies all distribution channels including food service, retail, home service, grocery, food and drug and more.

Below is a list of provincial dairy processors that may offer delivery service to schools. For a more comprehensive list of BC dairy processors, please click here. For a list of processors across Canada, click here.
