Over 750,000 litres of milk donated to less fortunate families in 2017

This year, Les Producteurs de lait du Québec donated 752,288 litres of milk to less fortunate families, including nearly 40,000 litres of milk through approximately one hundred organizations throughout the province for the Christmas season.

“Milk donations from Les Producteurs de lait du Québec help meet the dairy product needs of Quebec families who have financial woes. This gesture of solidarity is made with the support of our dairy industry partners and enables local families to receive milk and other dairy products throughout the year,” stated Bruno Letendre, Chair of Les Producteurs de lait du Québec.

Aware of milk’s importance for health, producers, transporters and processors in the dairy industry have joined forces to donate nearly 10 million litres of milk in the form of various dairy products to the least fortunate in our society since the first memorandum of understanding was signed with Food Banks of Quebec in 2003.
