Class 3(d) Description
The Canadian Milk Supply Management Committee (CMSMC), created under the National Milk Marketing Plan, has established a milk classification (milk Class 3(d)) for Mozzarella cheese used in pizza prepared and cooked on site for the benefit of restaurants. The purpose of this class is to provide restaurants access to cheese at a reduced price for pizza prepared and cooked on site.
The Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) was mandated by the CMSMC to administer the milk class.
This new milk class provides the terms and conditions under which milk at a reduced price is made available to manufacture Mozzarella cheese destined for sale to restaurants primarily engaged in preparing meals, snacks, and beverages to customer order and which sell pizzas prepared and cooked on site. For the purpose of milk Class 3(d), establishments that are not deemed eligible include but are not limited to: cafeterias, institutional food services and catering operations.
