Milky Way Partnership Nigeria – market driven sustainable growth in the dairy value chain
The project is a partnership between Arla, SEGES, CARE and CORET to support job creation and market driven sustainable growth in the dairy value chain in Nigeria. The objective is to establish a well-functioning dairy value chain in Nigeria. The project will achieve this objective through training and capability building, so farmers produce more and better-quality milk; dairies produce more and better products; market for local dairy products is developed; and collaboration among key stakeholders in the dairy value chain is improved. By creating a stronger commercial link to the formal market, the goal is that the beneficiaries – farm clusters related to MILCOPAL and Godilogo Farms – will be long-term partners of Arla and locally produced dairy products will be part of an Arla Nigeria brand. The project model is open-ended and scalable, so involvement of more beneficiaries in the project is an option.
