Celebrating World Milk Day: Raise a Glass!

Celebrating World Milk Day: It starts from the farm

 

 

We started our week-long celebration of this year’s World Milk Day with our dairy farmers in Oyo communities. The engagement themed “It starts from the farm”  delivered in partnership with the Nutrition Society of Nigeria (NSN) highlighted the invaluable contribution of dairy farmers in ensuring we have wholesome milk for daily nutrition.

The farmers are the starting point of the milk production value chain so we consider it important to appreciate them and educate them on the goodness of milk to healthy living and active lifestyle.

The celebration was also extended to pupils of Fashola Community Primary school, a small school for the farming community, where we shared the magic of milk for stronger bodies and sharper minds via a fun aerobic dance session.

FrieslandCampina WAMCO Dairy Development Programme (DDP) has been in operations since 2010. Our DDP is an inclusive business model with an array of community activities that encourages local economic development in milk production to meet the needs of consumers, farmers, local communities, the government, and our business. This has helped us to develop new institutional capacities, policies and practices that benefit pastoralists, small-holder farmers and the country as a whole. Under the DDP, we actively share our long-established knowledge in the field of dairy farming.  Through our knowledge-sharing, training courses, exchange programmes and the establishment of local milk collection systems, the Dairy Development Programme has already supported over 3500 local dairy farmers (including women). Through the DDP, our company supports farmers to expand their investment opportunities as the milk collected from the dairy farmers are used in the local manufacturing of Peak evaporated milk.
