Tanzanian dairy film: The workings of a successful dairy platform


Innovation platform are increasingly being used in the development sector to bring stakeholders together to achieve shared development objectives. This 5-minute film tells the story of the Tanzanian Tanga Dairy Platform, which is helping dairy farmers in Tanzania to improve their milk production and sales.

Tom Ole-Sikar, a dairy advisor with the SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, Tanzania, and Charles Tumaini, the head of milk sourcing at Tanzania’s Tanga Fresh Limited, explain how the Tanga Dairy Platform started, who its members are, and how these stakeholders are benefitting from the forum.

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) works with Tanzanian partners in implementing the ‘More Milk in Tanzania (MoreMilkIt)’ project to improve farmer access to feeding, breeding and animal health and credit services. This research is linked to the CGIAR Research Programs on Livestock and Fish and Humidtropics.
