The local milk sector in West Africa is faced with problems such as:

  • insufficient supply of local milk and dairy products/li>
  • strong competition from imported milk
  • Une forte concurrence du lait importé
  • inadequate traceability and milk quality control mechanisms
  • difficulties in accessing financing, especially for young people and women. This regional project, conceived by ROPPA, is designed to meet these challenges

The aim of this project is to help young people enter the dairy industry and develop their potential, thereby overcoming the constraints associated with supplying processing units with quality milk in sufficient quantities. Secondly, it aims to support young people in the production of fodder and contribute to reinforcing storage and access to livestock feed, as well as strengthening partnerships for improving milk quality and reinforcing the systems for promoting dairy product brands already set up by POs. It also contributes to strengthening local players' access to financing by supporting the development of business plans.

To help ensure that urban consumers have access to local dairy products of sufficient quality and quantity.
