The BC Milk Marketing Board initiated a consultation with BC Processors on July 5th, 2019 regarding the opportunity to develop a cost sharing policy between producers and processors on vendor audits.

The feedback period concluded on September 11, 2019 and the Board would like to thank processors for their feedback on this policy item. The Milk Board has considered the feedback received and would like to take more time to consider policy development in order to ensure all concerns raised can be addressed. The Board intends to continue consulting with the Milk Industry Advisory Committee, the Western Dairy Council and the Western Milk Pool in order to develop a Vendor Audit Cost Sharing policy that meets a sound governance structure for stakeholders.

The Board will provide updates as the development of the policy moves forward.
