woman looking at yogurt in grocery store

Look for the blue cow symbol

To find Canadian milk products at the grocery store, look for the blue cow logo, which guarantees that the product is made from 100% Canadian milk. 

What does it mean when you buy 100% Canadian milk?

  • We don't use growth hormone (recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST)) in Canada, but it is legal in the U.S. and some other countries.
  • Canada has some of the highest standards for milk production in the world, with zero tolerance for antibiotics in milk.
  • When you buy 100% Canadian milk products, you’re supporting the hard-working Canadian dairy farmers from your local community.

    Suzy, yes. "Made in Canada" doesn’t mean all the dairy ingredients are Canadian (though they might be). For the time being, however, if the product is ordinary milk, it does happen to be Canadian (even if there isn’t a statement to that effect). However, for products that are made with various dairy ingredients, some of those ingredients might be imported. That’s why the 100% dairy logo is so helpful, and more and more manufacturers are starting to use it. less
  • Can a dairy product saying "made in Canada" be just made but the milk is not Canadian?
  • Gillian, The logo can be black on some labels. The black and white version of the logo is permitted when the package isn't printed using full colour.

  • I am behind Canadian milk and products, 100% I don't use any other. Thank you so much for your updates.
  • Thank you for this!!!
  • Yes, there are cheeses that carry the symbol!
  • We look for the “cow symbol” to identify Canadian milk. Will we be seeing the cow on cheese packages? We too will only buy dairy from Canada.

  • Thanks for your support!
  • I do not wish to use milk products from any other country except Canada.
  • I will never buy USA milk or products. Guaranteed. This will make the Americans think twice about messing with the best country in the world.
