Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food (AGRI) of the House of Commons visit Steen’s Dairy/Organic Meadow

Federal MPs take a tour of Guelph’s local dairy.

(GUELPH, ON) – Steen’s Dairy Ltd and Organic Meadow Inc. are proud to announce that The Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food will be taking a tour of Steen’s Dairy on Monday May 28th, 2012, at 10:00am.

The Member’s of Parliament that will be attending include local Guelph MP, Frank Valeriote from the Liberal Party of Canada; Pierre Lemieux, Payne LaVar and Ben Lobb from the Conservative Party of Canada; and Ruth Ellen Brosseau and Francine Raynault from the New Democratic Party of Canada.

The objective of this visit is to allow members to gain insight into the supply chain system and learn what some of the challenges are for a small, local, independent dairy processor like Organic Meadow and Steen’s Dairy.

Steen’s Dairy and others like it are evidence of the increasing popularity of buying local, Canadian, organic dairy products, as well as the increasing brand strength of family-owned operations such as Steen’s Dairy and Organic Meadow.

Steen’s Dairy, a 20,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art dairy processing facility celebrated it grand opening in August of 2010. It is the first new independent dairy constructed in more than 20 years. The dairy incorporates best-in-class components to minimally process milk to achieve unsurpassed flavour, and is the first of its kind in Canada to feature stainless steel walls reflecting Steen’s and Organic Meadow’s overriding commitment to purity.
