Dairy Value Addition for Food Security Course

Course date: 07/09/2020 to 11/09/2020 Duration: 5 Days Course fee: USD 800, KES 65,000

INTRODUCTION

In Africa, dairy sector has a potential for rural development, poverty reduction and food and nutrition security. Although there has been a strong interest from policymakers, investors and also re-structuring of dairy value chains, dairy sector potential is still underexploited partly because of a number of production, marketing and trade constraints that hinder its development. Farmers therefore receives low prices when production is high and high prices when production is low. This negative price fluctuations is particularly because of their dependence in weather for their dairy production. Value addition can help stabilise prices, increase Kenya’s exports and promote rural sustainable development. This five (5) days course aim to offer knowledge on value addition of raw milk by producing a wide variety of processed products, to increase the return above the base price of raw milk.
