The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

The first Dairy Fes­ti­val for bet­ter cows, peo­ple and busi­ness will be held in Nairobi next Fri­day and Satur­day at the Bo­mas of Kenya. It is be­ing or­gan­ised by DairyPesa. “The fes­ti­val will be a meet­ing point for dairy en­thu­si­asts, pol­icy mak­ers, gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials, me­dia and other stake­hold­ers to dis­cuss and present so­lu­tions for the sec­tor,” said DairyPesa global busi­ness devel­op­ment co­or­di­na­tor Gert Louis. He said many gaps in the chain be­tween farm­ers, pro­ces­sors and mar­kets pre­vent Kenya from be­com­ing a global dairy player.

“Our goal is a bet­ter fu­ture for cows, peo­ple and busi­nesses,” Louis said. DairyPesa CEO Ki­pleliet Ronoh said they will ed­u­cate peo­ple on the ben­e­fits of milk. He said DairyPesa has re­cruited more than 126,000 small and medium dairy farm­ers. “We will roll out a sacco by Jan­uary next year to of­fer fi­nan­cial aid to farm­ers,” he said.
