Ugandan dairy plant

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DAIRY farmers in western Uganda, through their co-operative Uganda Crane Creameries Co-operative Union, have started building a UGX10 billion (US$4.7 million) milk processing plant in Mbarara. The plant, expected to be completed by the end of the year, will process 80 000 litres of pasteurised milk, 2 000 litres of UHT milk and 2 000 litres of yogurt in the first year. It is expected to have an annual turnover of UGX40 billion by 2011. Farmers have set up the facility to process milk themselves as they became disillusioned with processors. According to the country's Dairy Development Authority, south-western Uganda produces over 828 000 litres of milk a day, but only 200 000 litres are sold to the eight processors.
