The little blue cow symbol that appears on products made with 100 percent Canadian milk will now be seen on pizza boxes from Domino’s Pizza of Canada.

The pizza chain announced a partnership with Dairy Farmers of Canada today that includes a commitment to using cheese made from 100 percent Canadian milk.

“Domino’s decision to only use cheese made from 100 percent Canadian milk is a natural one,” said Michael Curran, president of Domino’s Pizza of Canada, in a news release. “Domino’s is a strong believer in fresh, high quality and local products and is a proud supporter of Canadian dairy farmers.”

Domino’s purchases over 4.8 million kg of cheese from the supply-managed Canadian dairy industry each year.

“We are proud that Domino’s has made this commitment to our Canadian dairy farmers,” said Wally Smith, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada. “Canada has some of the greatest cheeses in the world, and with good reason, since its main ingredient, 100 percent Canadian milk, is renowned for its high quality, purity and great taste.”

The announcement by Domino’s follows recent commitments from Tim Hortons and Subway to use 100 percent Canadian beef in feature products.
