Since the introduction of Dairyland products to Village Food Markets in December 2009, we've teamed up to donate money to local schools. We're proud to offer the full range of high quality Dairyland products and help our schools overcome funding shortages for activities and programs. Milk Money is a great fundraiser for our community.

Milk Money Pays Out

We were proud to announce our first payout in March 2010. Subsequent payouts are truly inspirational. To date, the program has raised over $40,000 for local schools. We are once again looking forward to the next payout in September 2017.

More About Dairyland

In 1914 a group of Vancouver Island dairy farmers created the Comox Valley Creamery near Courtenay. Through the years, this small dairy expanded to serve all of Vancouver Island and in 1946 they opened the Comox Creamery. In 1969 it was incorporated into Dairyland’s operations and moved to their present location in Vancouver in 1982. In 2001, Dairyland was acquired by Montreal-based Saputo, the largest cheese manufacturor in Canada. Since 1914 Dairyland has been donating dairy products to Vancouver Island families, community groups and schools that need a helping hand.
