Les Producteurs de lait du Québec

Les Producteurs de lait du Québec (PLQ) represents the 12,000 milk producers of some 5,600 dairy farms across the province. The organization’s mission is to:

  • create living conditions and revenues for all milk producers that are comparable to those in society as a whole;
  • ensure that these equitable living conditions and revenues continue to be the result of effective market mechanisms and not an excessive dependency on public funding;
  • maintain a production structure that is managed by owner operators.


Les Producteurs de lait du Québec are affiliated with the Union des producteurs agricoles.
