Dairyland was a company based in Vancouver, British Columbia and is now owned by Saputo Dairy Foods Canada. Its products are sold across Canada. Dairyland became Agrifoods International Cooperative Ltd. following the sale of the majority of its assets to Saputo Incorporated.

Dairyworld Foods, a Canadian based dairy co-operative, was purchased by Saputo Incorporated in 2001. Dairyworld Foods, also known as Agrifoods International Cooperative Limited, produced milk to be sold in Canada at large retailers as Dairyland. Dairyworld was created in 1992 from various mergers. In November 2009, Dairyland products were replaced in Ontario by Neilson after Saputo's acquisition of the William Neilson brand from George Weston Limited.

Predecessors[edit]

Fraser Valley Milk Producers Association, Northern Alberta Dairy Producers, Central Alberta Dairy Producers, and Dairy Producers Cooperative Ltd. were farmer-owned co-operative creameries and dairy marketers, formed in the early 1900s. They produced dairy products under regional brand in their own home areas. For example, NADP (Northern Alberta Dairy Pool)[1] produced Nu-Maid milk, and CADP produced Alpha brand milk. In 1992 FVMPA, NADP, and CADP merged to form Agrifoods International Cooperative Ltd. In 1996 Dairy Producers Cooperative Ltd. joined the new group.

In 2001 Agrifoods International sold all of its processing and brands (except Ultima Foods) to Saputo Inc. Agrifoods International continues to exist but no longer markets its own products..[2]
