 Agropur is selling or closing all of its milk transport businesses in Quebec and Nova Scotia.

It remains in the business in New Brunswick.

In Nova Scotia, Agropur will discontinue its farm pick-up operations as of June 30. The change will result in the elimination of 34 jobs at Agropur. 

Dairy Farmers of Nova Scotia has signed agreements with two other transport companies to take over the operation.

Eleven employees in Quebec will lose their jobs; the other 75 will be retained by the companies buying those businesses.
