first national pizza company in Canada to have made this commitment, said a news release from the company.

"Domino's decision to only use cheese made from 100 per cent Canadian milk is a

products and is a proud supporter of Canadian dairy farmers."

Domino's commitment is expected to have a positive impact on the Canadian dairy
industry given that the pizza company purchases over 4.8 million kilogram of
cheese each year for use in its menu items.

"We are proud that Domino's has made this commitment to our Canadian
dairy farmers," said Wally Smith, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada.
"Canada has some of the greatest cheeses in the world, and with good
reason, since its main ingredient, 100 per cent Canadian milk, is renowned for
its high quality, purity and great taste."

Canadians will now see the 100 per cnet Canadian milk symbol on all Domino's
menus, pizza boxes and on its website.
