Fifteen counties have initiated activities to register in the milk and the dairy board program.
“Milk supply has been very high while the consumption remains constant; we are also unable to export to Uganda since we have higher prices driven by higher costs of production. Our Tanzania market is now receiving supplies from South Africa and so we have a huge stock of powdered milk. It is hard for the sector since we also have to protect the farmers,” new Kenya Co-operative Creameries Board Chairman mr. Matu Wamae said.
Acting managing director Humphrey Maina said that the deal is made to help farmers get milk into market. He has urged the targeted counties to look for funds to finance the project.
