CADA is a collective of consumers who want to see Canada’s outdated ban on raw milk lifted. In the only G7 nation where raw milk cannot be sold legally, we advocate for safe, healthy access to raw milk through appropriate regulation and inspection. We support family farms that nurture their land and livestock to produce top-quality milk. We say yes to consumer choice!
