Dairy is the most important category within packaged food in value terms for Latin America, exceeding USD billion in and showing quite polarised growth between the countries in the region.
Phase II builds on the success and learning from Phase Iwhich helpedsmallholder farming families in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda double their dairy incomes.
The overall vision for EADD is to transform the lives of farming families with improved market access to a robust dairy value chain that benefits all industry stakeholders.
In Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, a large portion of total household income comes from dairy. However, many dairy producers lack business skills, knowledge of proper production technologies, and access to inputs and services. Opportunity Dairy cows are one of the most valuable and profitable assets for African farming families.
They provide a dependable source of income, producing milk for substantial periods that farmers can sell and rely on short-turnaround for payment.
Given the right tools and opportunities, East African dairy farmers can increase their incomes and contribute to the growth of the dairy market across the region.
Strategy The vision of success for EADD is to transform the lives of farming families with improved market access to a wealth-creating, robust dairy value chain that benefits all industry stakeholders.
In the first five-year phase, TechnoServe worked with new and existing community farmer groups to organize into dairy business associations that managed dairy chilling plants.
These chilling plants allow farmers to access formal dairy markets and improve the quality of milk sold in traditional markets. Additionally, they serve as business hubs that provide dairy farmers access to a variety of services, including access to finance, agricultural inputs and health care.
The hub model helps farmers improve milk productivity and quality by facilitating access to genetic improvement technologies and community-based animal health services. Results for Phase I Developing sustainable farmer enterprises: During the first project phase, completed in OctoberTechnoServe implemented all business development-related components of the program.
TechnoServe has facilitated and improved market linkages between farmer enterprises and leading processors in the region. Milk aggregation has empowered farmer enterprises to negotiate for better prices, and processors have started to recognize the farmer enterprises as important partners.
Increasing productivity and incomes: Average monthly milk intake at the dairy enterprises has increased fromliters to 3 million liters.
Expanding access to finance: EADD integrated access to financial services as a critical component of the program. TechnoServe developed a financing model that resulted in partnership with five leading commercial banks, providing access to credit and commercial loans to farmers at competitive rates.
Before EADD, banks exhibited restraint in lending to farmer businesses and considered lending to agriculture a risky venture. Farmer enterprises in Kenya have also established 13 financial services associations FSAswhich have improved access to rural financial services and spurred an array of business opportunities and innovations.
Building a more competitive dairy sector: EADD-supported dairies in East Africa supply a substantial amount of milk volumes processed by dairy companies, especially in Kenya.
This has catalyzed greater competition, competitive farmer milk prices and a shift in marketing strategies by processors. As a result, processors have entered into strategic alliances with farmer enterprises that go beyond milk supply contracts.
Processors in Kenya are now offering technical assistance to farmers to improve milk quality, financing field days and farmer training, and providing access to low-cost inputs and transport services.
The project has made key contributions in facilitating the expansion of dairy markets and traditional milk products in the target countries.When marketing a dairy product, the most important aspect of your strategy is determining your competition and audience.
