The refrigeration industry needs refrigeration to keep its equipment running efficiently and produce more milk for its farmers.
The government recently approved $200 million in new subsidies to help the industry, which has long struggled to find money to keep up with rising food prices.
But it has not yet determined how much subsidy money will go to the industry and how it will be distributed.
The new subsidies are aimed at helping the industry keep up and keep up production, but they have yet to be put into effect.
The Liberals have been promising new subsidies for dairy producers for several years, but no firm plans have been announced.
Industry groups say the government needs to ensure the subsidy money is not spent on unnecessary expenses such as hiring staff, buying equipment or renovating equipment.
“This is not a government that is going to have a policy that puts dairy production at risk,” said Kevin Fagan, the president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada.
“That’s just a fundamental principle of our system of government.”
The new subsidy is a good first step, said Peter Piotrowski, the former head of the Canadian Dairy Products Association.
But he worries the government will not be able to fully distribute the money it has earmarked for the industry until it gets its act together.
The federal government has earmarked $10.5 billion over five years for the dairy industry, but the federal government will only spend $1.3 billion of the money on its own.
Industry associations have warned that the federal Liberals plan to spend $9 billion of that money on subsidies for its own industry.
The $20 million the federal Liberal government has allocated for the milk industry is far from enough, said Fagan.
“I think the Liberals will get away with this because the industry will be the first to be hit,” he said.
“It’s going to be a disaster for the economy of the country.”
