Kosam

Senegal

Context

Social
In Senegal, agricultural market is made up with smallholders with  low volumes of production.  Thus, people in Senegal mostly consume milk imported powder.

Business
La Laiterie du Berger  wants to increase the volumes of milk available from local farming communities by supporting small-scale farming in Senegal.

Action

With the support of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, La Laiterie du Berger and its local partner, the SOS Sahel, co-created the  Kosam project to provide market access to farmers, and strenghten their production by developping and dissaminating sustainable and resilient farming models and services. The project will train farmers in an incubator farm and assist them to implement their farms. Circular economy will be promoted through usage of local cane sugar by product for animal feed.
