UPEI Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Amalgamated Dairies Limited (ADL), to ensure that current and future Panthers are fuelled by ADL milk and chocolate milk.

“I am very grateful for the support ADL has provided Panther Sport over the years,” said Chris Huggan, director of Athletics and Recreation at UPEI. “For them to engage at an even greater level, focusing on the health, well-being, and performance of our student-athletes, is another big step forward in our pursuit of individual and team success.”

ADL milk is recognized nationally for its quality. It is an excellent source of 16 essential nutrients, including calcium, protein, and vitamin D. ADL milk offers multiple health and fitness benefits as part of an overall healthy diet—something many Panthers count on every day. For the 2018–2019 season, fridges of ADL milk products will greet Panther athletes after practice and tournament games. UPEI Panther athletes will be visiting schools, scrimmaging, and playing AUS games whilst selling the virtues of fitness.

 “We are proud to be building on our partnership with UPEI Athletics to improve the health and performance of Panther athletes. Dairy is important to a healthy and balanced diet,” said Jamie MacPhail, marketing manager for ADL. “ADL has a long history of providing support to the Island sport community and understands the importance of providing athletes with opportunities to succeed.”

UPEI Athletics and Recreation provides leadership in the promotion and delivery of athletic excellence and quality physical activity programs and services that enhance health, wellness, and a sense of community. UPEI is proud to host the U SPORTS Women’s Hockey Championship in both 2019 and 2020.

ADL is a dairy cooperative that is owned by all of PEI’s 165 dairy producers. For 65 years, ADL has processed fresh quality milk from PEI farms to produce premium dairy products that Islanders and Canadians have come to love and enjoy.

Go Panthers Go!
