Agropur is a cooperative
Owned by 3,290 dairy farmers who have joined forces to process and market the high-quality milk they produce on their farms.
Agropur uses milk to create the wide range of dairy products and the strong brands that our customers and consumers love.
When you purchase an Agropur product, you are helping to build a better world. You are choosing a natural product that meets the highest quality standards, makes a difference in rural communities throughout North America and is good for both you and your community.
We are proud of our unique business model, based on solidarity, democracy and the pooling of resources. This model is a powerful tool for generating and sharing wealth.
Every year, we return a patronage dividends to our members, based on their annual milk production and on the surpluses that the Cooperative has generated. This payment helps our members create value in their communities. As our members put it, “We’re just as much a business as any other, but we’re not just a business like any other.”
Now it is one of the largest dairy processors in the world. At a time of stiff competition in the worldwide dairy industry, we intend to remain a significant player and to differentiate ourselves by our values.
Being a cooperative means helping to build a fairer, more equitable world. The more of us there are who share these values, the more we will participate in building a better world.
We contribute to the economic vitality and well-being of our communities.
We are building a better world.
Better dairy. Better world.
We are Agropur.
