Dairy - DFO clashes with the Dairy Council over ‘milk beverage’ labeling

The Ontario Dairy Council, representing processors, wants to add modified milk ingredients, but Dairy Farmers of Ontario opposes this, saying that it will create consumer confusion


The Ontario Dairy Council wants its processor members to be able to sell “milk” beverages containing modified milk ingredients to consumers.

“We are asking to be allowed to put other ingredients into a milk beverage to allow processors to be innovative and to increase the market,” says Christina Lewis, vice-president, Ontario Dairy Council.
