In Senegal, agricultural market is made up with smallholders with low volumes of production. Thus, people in Senegal mostly consume milk imported powder.
La Laiterie du Berger wants to increase the volumes of milk available from local farming communities by supporting small-scale farming in Senegal.
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.
This project empowers small farmers by improving their revenue and expertise. It also creates jobs .
La Laiterie du Berger is reinforcing its milk supply and is improving local milk competitiveness
The project supports sustainable agriculture and local development.
