Storage Assistance for Cheese Program (SAC)

The Storage Assistance Program (SAC) and its funding are approved by the Canadian Milk Supply Management Committee (CMSMC) to whom the Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) reports regularly.

Program Objectives

The main objective of the SAC program is to encourage cheese manufacturers to produce various types of cheese (fresh or frozen), aged cheeses and rennet casein for the domestic market during periods of the year when milk supply exceeds domestic requirements, as determined by Provincial milk marketing boards or agencies. The financial assistance provided under this Program serves to offset the carrying charges incurred by the cheese manufacturer associated with the storage of the product after its manufacture.

The Storage Assistance for Cheese Program is not currently accepting new applications.
