Safety first.

BC’s dairy farmers are in the business of producing food. They aim to ensure that the safety, flavour and quality of their milk will satisfy the highest expectations of the food industry and consumers alike.

Food safety is everyone’s business in the dairy industry. Milk quality and safety are checked during or immediately after milking, before the bulk tank milk graders pick up the milk, and before milk is unloaded at the processor. Results that fall outside of standards lead to warnings, rejection of milk or meat, financial penalties and loss of their license to produce.

The Food Safety module of proAction is an on-farm HACCP-based food safety program developed by Dairy Farmers of Canada and recognized by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).
