Raw milk on trial in Ontario, court could permanently shut down sales

While consumers continue to demand natural and organic foods, the government has stifled the growth of one category: raw milk. Because raw milk is harder to regulate, the dairy industry has gone to great lengths to prevent its growth in popularity, even hiring lobbyists to sway those in positions of power.

Key Takeaways:

  • Raw milk and raw milk farmers are unfairly discriminated against in Canada.
  • There’s no leniency in enforcement of raw milk laws.
  • Farmers are angry about how hard it is to legally make and sell raw milk.
