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.
