Dano Milk Partners with Kaduna Govt to Empower 1,000 Small Scale farmers

One of Nigeria’s most trusted Diary drink, Arla Dano Milk, has continued to show its commitment towards ensuring that they provide a healthy living through its various ranges of diary drinks which has grown to become a household name in the country.

The company has achieved another milestone as they have just partnered with the Kaduna State Government in engaging 1,000 Small Scale farmers in Dairy Production known as the ‘Milky Way.’

Arla Dano Milk stressed that the partnership is its commitment towards developing a sustainable dairy sector in Nigeria as well as help create employment opportunity.

“At Arla, we’re committed to developing a sustainable dairy sector in Nigeria. We are partnering with the Kaduna State Government in engaging 1,000 Small Scale farmers in Dairy Production.

“We engage in the sustainable development of the local dairy sector in the emerging markets in which we operate. It is expected of us as a leading international dairy group and we believe that a trusted and flourishing local dairy sector will benefit both local small farmers and domestic and international dairy companies.

“Our focus is on Nigeria, Bangladesh, China, Indonesia and Ethiopia, where we are committed to meeting the needs of the present population, without compromising opportunities for future generations. Our ambitions for sustainable international dairy development are aligned to the UN’s sustainable development goals.”

The Milky Way Partnership is a collaboration between Arla, as commercial lead, the NGO Care Denmark, the Danish Agricultural and Food Council, Seges and the Nigerian pastoralist organisation Coret, and is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark. The project is based in the north of the country, in Kaduna State.

The selection of the farmers who were invited to be involved with the project was given great consideration, and a variety of farmers, in differing scenarios, were chosen to test the model’s ability to be scaled up and transferred to different areas in the country. This was done in collaboration with Milcopal, a local dairy cooperative, already experienced with working with local farmers and sharing Arla’s cooperative values.
