A Dairy Hub start-up

Post 1 of 4, Aug 2015

I travelled to Senegal to visit a Tetra Pak customer to support their start up of a Dairy Hub project. The Dairy Hub will allow the company to supply locally produced milk from small-holder farmers.

During the visit, I shared information about the Dairy Hub concept, the obligations of involved parties, assessment of the current situation and opportunities for the future. I also addressed how to do this in practice; that is how to arrange the collection of the milk, manage quality control and payment models.

I also talked about how to work with the farmers, including training concepts and support models, aiming to provide them with inputs, access to artificial insemination, veterinarian services etc.
