When you choose Chapman’s ice cream, you know you are choosing real ice cream made with 100% Canadian milk and cream.
That’s important because recent changes have opened up the Canadian market to American dairy. In Canada, dairy farmers must ensure their milk is free from antibiotics and they are not allowed to give their cows growth hormones to increase milk production.
If you want to avoid exposing your family to antibiotics and artificial growth hormones such as bovine somatotropin (bST), look for the 100% Canadian Milk symbol – also known as the blue cow logo – on all your dairy products.
In addition, in 2005 the Canadian government repealed the edible oils act. Prior to this, vegetable oils were not allowed to be used in food products to replace butterfat. We encourage you to read the label – if it says frozen dessert, it’s not real ice cream.
At Chapman’s, we’re committed to supporting Canada’s dairy farmers. We’re proud to be the largest processor of butterfat in Canada. And we’ll continue to manufacture real ice cream using only 100% Canadian dairy.
