Each waking day, Agropur cooperative responds to the call of some 3,367 dairy farmers who rely on this organization, which they jointly own, to enhance the fruit of their labour. More than 5.7 billion litres of milk are processed annually in 39 plants spread throughout North America.
Generating more than $5.9 billion in sales, the resulting products grace the tables of thousands of consumers from coast to coast. But before these products reach their tables, more than 8,000 employees and many contract agents assigned to milk collection and distribution combine their efforts and expertise to ensure that the final product meets all expectations.
On February 8, 2013, Agropur and Farmers Co-operative Dairy signed an agreement to merge the two cooperatives in one, pooling their strengths in order to better ensure their positioning within the Canadian market by covering all geographic regions of Canada.
2013 marked the 75th Anniversary of Agropur Dairy Cooperative.
