Canada Royal Milk (CRM) is Ontario’s newest food manufacturing company, with production starting in September 2019. Construction of our state-of-the-art facility is progressing quickly, and we are looking for people to join our team immediately

CRM is a Canadian corporation established by our parent company, Feihe International Inc. in October 2016. Feihe International is the largest domestic producer of formula for infants and young children in the Peoples Republic of China, and company recently celebrated its 56th year in business. In 2018, for the 4th consecutive year, Feihe was awarded the Gold Quality Award by Monde International (known as the Nobel Prize of the food industry) for its AstroBaby infant milk powder.

Canada Royal Milk will manufacture formulations for infants and young children using both cow dairy and goat dairy, building local supply chains to benefit the Canadian economy. Most of our production will be for export, but we intend to develop nutritional products for the North American market as well.
