Canada’s first milk concentration plant will open in Alberta in 2025.

Dairy Innovation West (DIW), a collaboration between dairy industry groups from Manitoba to B.C., will build the $73.7 million plant near Blackfalds at the Aspelund Industrial Park.

“We picked this location because in Alberta this is where the majority of their dairy farmers are,” Henry Holtmann, chair of DIW Buildings & Land Corporation, said in a video on X.

The concentration process involves using reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration to remove water from unpasteurized milk.

For many dairy products, that water is unnecessary.
