Dairy Farmers of New Brunswick (DFNB), a non-profit organization funded by dairy farmers, is the organization through which New Brunswick’s dairy farmers collectively market their raw milk.
DFNB is led by a Board of directors consisting of nine dairy farmers who are elected by farmers
throughout the province. The Board creates policies designed to represent the interests of New
Brunswick dairy farmers in their pursuit of operating sustainable dairy farms that produce high
quality milk within a supply management system.
Under the supply management system in Canada, raw milk production is matched to market
demand. DFNB shares, with other provincial Boards, markets and revenues derived from
marketing of raw milk used in industrial products such as cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter, and
skim milk powder and fluid products such as milk and cream.
