Dairy event for better bovines, people and trade
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.
