Walmart changed their milk from Dairyland to Lucerne

I was surprised to see this. I know people have their preferences when it comes to milk. Anyone know the reason why?

Is it cheaper American milk?
They only got 3.6% of our market it’s not gonna end up in our standard milk, it will come in the form of some speciality cheeses, whey powder, and maybe some speciality milk products.

That is what I suspected.

American milk AS MILK ... is here already in Ontario
It’s branded as Fairlife
https://fairlife.com
Is ultra filtered and comes in funky plastic bottles
It is bottled in Peterborough, and distributed by Coca Cola Canada
https://www.coca-cola.ca/stories/fairlife#ath

Interestingly... I see that another well known Cdn Milk Co
(Might have been Lucerne... I cannot recall right off)
Was now also selling in the same funky bottles

Not sure if this means that Cdn Co is also bottling at the new plant in Peterborough
Or if they are now also importing US milk for their brand

I will have to take a further look at those bottles next time I am at the Grocery Store
Info on place of origin (US Milk) and Distribution (Coca Cola Canada) being right in the label for Fairlife

It is odd, since Lucerne was always Safeway's brand, also now available at Sobeys since the merger.

We find Lucerne dairy products to be most similar to Dairyland which we usually buy, unlike something like Beatrice milk which is gross.

I usually don't find Beatrice milk gross, but I tried their skim milk and it tasted very bitter and off. I don't think it was spoiled though.

I wouldn’t exactly call those standard milk. I did say it may end up in speciality milk products, which I would classify those as speciality.

Oh no, I did notice the dairy section looked cleared out. I wanted to buy some more Dairyland whipping cream at a reasonable price. Ugh.

Sometime next year, Walmarts in Ontario is going to replace Neilson with one of the Agropur brands, most likely Sealtest.

Fairlife is bottled in the states and imported by the Minute Maid Company.
