DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA — Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd., supplier of MEG-3 brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, has launched Farmers Choice Partly Skimmed Milk, the first Canadian milk to be introduced containing omega-3.
"We are a local company and are proud to offer our Farmers Choice Partly Skimmed Milk with Ocean Nutrition Canada’s ingredient," said Andrea Hickey, marketing and communications manager with Farmers Dairy.
"We believe our customers will love the taste of the milk, the added heart health benefits of omega-3 and the fact this is a 100% locally made product."
The MEG-3 ingredient technology was researched and developed in Nova Scotia, and Farmers Milk is the first local food product to bring the innovation to Nova Scotia consumers. Farmers Choice Partly Skimmed Milk is available across all major grocery stores in the province.
