Operation Milk Carton Because Santa Claus isn’t the only one who loves milk!

Longueuil, December 19, 2018


The holidays are a season of joy, festive decorations, family time, children bursting with anticipation as they await Santa’s arrival, and parents eager to lay out a Christmas feast for their brood.


Agropur chips in with donations of milk and butter. For the year 2018, including the holidays, Agropur decided to process, package and deliver the equivalent of 813,680 glasses of milk and 2.2 metric tons of butter made with 100% Canadian milk to food banks, in conjunction with Les Producteurs de lait du Québec and the parties to the Milk Transportation Agreement.


Holiday cheer and goodwill

With everyone talking about the hit television commercials from Les Producteurs de lait du Québec featuring a milk-drinking Santa fielding questions from children, and all of Agropur’s Natrel brand milk cartons sporting their holiday best, including a photo of the real Santa Claus, a Christmas elf or a cow wearing a Santa cap, Agropur and its employees, dairy farmers and milk transporters have all been swept up in the holiday spirit. As they do every year, they are lending a hand to make the season a little bit brighter for everyone.
