About KMDP

KMDP Phase-I started 1st of July 2012 and ended 31st of December 2016. Phase-II of KMDP runs from 1st of October 2016 until 1st of July 2019.

KMDP works across the dairy value chain with smallholder dairy entrepreneurs, medium and large scale farmers, dairy cooperatives and farmer organisations, milk processors input suppliers and service providers, including for dairy training and advisory, industry associations and policy and regulatory bodies (e.g. Kenya Dairy Processors Association, Kenya Dairy Board and the Ministry of Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries).

The overall goal of KMDP is to contribute to the development of a competitive, market-driven and private sector-led Kenyan dairy sector, with beneficiaries across the value chain. Enhanced competitiveness is defined as being the result of the combination of cost price of raw milk (productivity), efficient milk collection, processing and marketing, quality of milk and dairy products, and level playing field and effective competition in the market.

The project contributes to an improved business and investment climate of the Kenyan dairy sector. It promotes and facilitates business-led networks and collaborations between Kenyan and Dutch dairy sector stakeholders for enhanced trade, exchange of knowledge, skills development and innovation. The Dutch dairy sector has valuable knowledge and technology to offer, provided these are adapted to local needs and are affordable. The transitioning from aid to trade relations in the dairy sector, is used by the project as a strategy for increased sector growth and competitiveness, and for achieving food security and food safety.
