Ethiopia: Milk Processors Association to Go Operational

The Ethiopian Milk Processors Industry Association is going to be officially established on July 10, 2014, during a founding workshop at the Hilton Hotel.

The Ethiopian Meat & Dairy Industry Development Institute, which is under the Ministry of Industry (MoI) established in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Ethiopia's Agricultural Growth Program-Livestock Market Development (AGP-LMD) project.

The association will work on improving the contribution of the dairy sub sector to the overall agro-processing sectoral growth and development, in addition to the creation of job opportunities and improvement of livelihoods.

As the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) gives much attention to the livestock sub sector development, the MoI has been working to achieve value based production and marketing of value added livestock products to meet the goals in collaboration with partners and stakeholders in the sub sector.
