The MGP aims to stimulate investments for long-term market growth in Canadian dairy processing by supporting sustainable and innovative investment projects with an emphasis on the use of milk solids-non fat (SNF). Its intended outcome is to accelerate and support investments which aim to reduce structural SNF surplus, support market growth, or process milk in regions with significant skim milk surplus/processing deficiencies.
The Market Growth Program is delivered by the Canadian Dairy Commission on behalf of the Canadian Milk Supply Management Committee using a stream-based approach.
The Pre-Production Funding stream of the Market Growth Program supports investments in additional processing capacity for SNF and in the creation of new products that add value to the SNF surplus. This stream supports the execution of studies during the planning stage of an investment.
Information related to the other program streams will be posted as the streams become available.
