Oct. 16, 2014, Toronto – Domino's Pizza of Canada has committed to using only cheese made from 100 per cent Canadian milk on all its pizzas and other menu items.
The company, based in Leamington, Ont., has entered a partnership with Dairy Farmers of Canada by committing to using only cheese made from 100 per cent Canadian milk on all its pizzas and other menu items. Domino's is the 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 natural one," said Michael Curran, president of Domino's Pizza of Canada, in the release. "Domino's is a strong believer in fresh, high quality and local 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.
