Cheaper Cheese: A win for CRFA members!

Thanks to over a decade of lobbying by CRFA members, Canadian restaurateurs will soon be able to buy Canadian mozzarella cheese for use on pizzas at a special discount. CRFA has negotiated this new cheese price to help offset the discount that frozen pizza manufacturers have enjoyed for many years. 

CRFA has been the only business association fighting for fair dairy prices for restaurant owners – this is a great first step!

How can CRFA help?
Here's what CRFA Member Andy Brunelle of Pizza Dee's in Wasaga Beach, Ontario had to say:

"I found CRFA to be very helpful with excellent service in support of our registration with the CDC. Member services even helped us with how to go about the online registration process, which wasn't something we were too familiar with. Anything that helps me save money has to be very good if not excellent. As a result of the information provided by CRFA and the specifics of the program, we made a slight adjustment in the type of mozza we use, and now save even more money when you consider the price of the product we now use, and the 3(d) discount available."
