ADL created Dairy Isle in 2016 to sell its products off-Island under its own regional brand. In 2020, discussions with Walmart Canada provided ADL an opportunity to sell more of their products at a national level.
“The expertise and advice that Walmart has given us, as a small organization, has been critical,” Mann said. “A few small tweaks from their angle created a 100% improvement in the packaging of that product.”
But it’s not just about saving money for customers. It’s also about protecting Canadian jobs and resources.
“The Canadian people see the risk of farms disappearing, processing plants disappearing, food coming from somewhere else,” Mann said. “People understand what local means to them now.”
And it doesn’t get more local than supporting Canadian dairy farmers.
At Walmart Canada, we’re proud to support Canadian jobs by working with local suppliers. This helps boost Canada’s economy and provides opportunities for people of all backgrounds. We consider it an obligation and a privilege to provide Canadians with products they trust from companies in the communities where they live.
