proAction is Canada’s national on-farm quality assurance program, required for all dairy farmers in Canada and recognized by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). It is an industry-led, rigorously audited program that is based on continuous on-farm improvement. proAction evolves based on new scientific knowledge, updated federal regulations, and consultation with dairy producers, expert stakeholders (e.g. veterinarians), and dairy processors. Canadians can be confident in the rigorous on-farm processes and record keeping that ensure food safety, milk quality, animal care, livestock traceability, on-farm biosecurity, and environmental sustainability.
