Should British Columbia Model Raw Milk Regulations on California?

Mark McAffee, a California raw milk entrepreneur and the CEO of the Raw Milk Institute, toured British Columbia last month for speaking engagements and on-farm training sessions in raw milk safety. During his trip, McAffee implied that British Columbia could cut the expensive legal disputes stemming from the distribution of raw milk by taking a cue from California and adjusting its raw milk regulations.

“In California, raw milk is 100% legal, but it is highly regulated with a different set of standards from pasteurized milk,” explains McAffee. In British Columbia, the government could declassify raw milk as a health hazard by grouping it in with other foods that carry no more risk but are less regulated, like oysters.
