Move over, Miss Muffet: there's a whole new market for your whey. In the past, M-C Dairy Limited sold the excess liquid from cottage cheese production as pig feed. Today, they're transforming that whey into a unique protein drink. At full capacity, the new value-added product line could potentially use 1,000 litres of whey by-product. It also offers a local and nutritious alternative to water-based sports beverages that are often packed with sugar and artificial flavours. M-C Dairy currently has one product on shelves today, with three more flavours featuring natural fruit juice concentrates in the works.
