With 140 years of brand heritage, Canadian dairy leader Lactalis Canada’s purpose is to enrich and nurture people across Canada by not only producing high-quality dairy products but by helping empower communities across the country, including supporting young people and youth mental health and well-being through its more than 33-year partnership with Kids Help Phone.

As one of Kids Help Phone’s Founding Partners, Lactalis Canada played a crucial role in building awareness of our service when we first launched in May 1989. Then known as Ault Foods, the company included the Kids Help Phone logo and phone number on many of its popular milk and cheese products.

Over the years, Lactalis Canada has continued to raise awareness of Kids Help Phone while also generously supporting our mission through major sponsorships and donations, as well as an increased awareness of Kids Help Phone by carrying the Kids Help Phone logo and phone number on many of its iconic dairy products including brands Astro and Cheestrings.

The company has been a long-standing National Sponsor of the annual Walk so Kids Can Talk presented by BMO event. Lactalis Canada has also extensively engaged its employees in fundraising initiatives.

We’re deeply grateful to Lactalis Canada for more than three decades of this dedicated partnership and for continuing to support connecting young people in Canada to Kids Help Phone — when, where and how they need us most.

“Our purpose is to enrich and nurture people in Canada which extends to empowering people and communities across the country, including supporting youth mental health and well-being. We are exceedingly proud of our more than 30-year founding partnership with Kids Help Phone which aligns with our purpose by providing young people bilingual, 24/7, confidential counselling.”

— Mark Taylor, President & CEO, Lactalis Canada
