Chances are that when Santa Claus comes to town, you know he expects some good old-fashioned milk and cookies. So, of course, we all put out the traditional glass of goodness for our old friend Saint Nick. But how many of us really know where that milk came from? One way or another, the Dairy Farmers of Canada are a massive part of the holidays — from eggnog to hot chocolate, cheese platters to milk and cookies.
So, in the spirit of the season, the DFC has put out a seasonal video to highlight what they bring to the table (hint: it’s not just that crisp glass of milk we know and love). While we are munching on our cheese nibbles or chowing down on a delicious poutine, this group is hard at work supplying the milk that makes all your dairy dreams come true. And considering Canadian milk standards are among the highest in the world, you know you’re consuming top-quality dairy!
Most dairy farms have stayed family-run for generations, with the reins now being passed down to millennials (yet another reason to be proud of our generation). And, as a family-focused organization, the DFC works hard all year to make sure you and your family can sit back and enjoy the dairy deliciousness.
These diligent dairy farmers are people too, and this hilarious video, entitled "Both Sides of the Glass," highlights just that — their fun-loving and humorous sides. After all, it can’t be all work and no play (and what’s better to showcase this than a sit-down with Santa). Check it out and see firsthand the unique twist on a seasonal talk show and just try not to smile.
Year-round, the DFC works to ensure that Canadians from coast to coast get healthy, high-quality dairy products. Now, if you’ve ever wandered into a specialty shop and looked around, the selection can be a bit overwhelming — there’s so many choices, and how can you tell what’s good — let alone what's the best?
When you spot this sign, rest easy knowing you’re holding a product that’s made with 100% Canadian milk and milk ingredients. Basically, it means you’re holding a product that supports local Canadian farmers and businesses; and that Canada’s strict milk quality and safety standards have been met.
Whenever you see their emblem, you know that you’re bringing home cream-of-the-crop dairy, made with care by dedicated Canadian dairy farmers. As we millennials know, quality matters, and it's not just about the end product — the iconic blue logo also means that Canadian dairy cows have been treated in the most ethical way possible.
That’s what the DFC is all about: using innovative methods to make top-tier products, all while ensuring the health and happiness of the animals in their care. What could be better than that?
So, the next time you add a cup of cream to your cake batter or prep a cheese platter for your holiday event, give the DFC a nod for all their hard work.
