See the road that milk – a locally produced, minimally processed food – travels at our Cooperative
Danny Martineau has been a bulk milk grader at Agropur for more than 18 years. Trucking is his passion. He drives from farm to farm to pick up milk from proud dairy producers and transport it to the Cooperative’s processing plants. In the course of his daily work, he learns about the secrets of dairy farming from the veteran farmers he meets.
Danny says the way farmers and Agropur employees work together is the foundation of the Cooperative’s success: “We’re all links in the chain and I’m proud to be part of a Cooperative that’s always moving forward and always wants to innovate.”
