U of G Prof: Momentum Growing For Raw Milk Access

University of Guelph Professor Sylvain Charlebois says the momentum is growing to give consumers more choice when it comes to raw milk.

Charlebois says scientists still don’t know whether the benefits of raw milk outweigh the risks.

But he believes things have changed a lot since raw milk distribution was banned in Ontario in 1991.

Charlebois argues that includes our ability to understand and manage the risks involved.

He suggests that for agriculture to be able to create wealth we need to recognize that people are looking for different things and adapt so the industry can provide those things.

Charlebois is the Associate Dean of the University of Guelph’s College of Business and Economics.

He was on the CKNX AM 920 Talk Show with Bryan Allen on Tuesday.
