Rwanda Reports Increase in Dairy Exports in 2016

13 December 2016

RWANDA - Rwanda’s earnings from export of dairy products increased from $85,000 in 2012 to $11.5 million in 2016, Rwanda Dairy Competitiveness Programme II (RDCP II) Impact Report shows.

By 2016, according to the report, 78,000 additional litres of milk were being processed per day in Rwanda, helping meet a growing need for milk used in value added products.

This move brought the quantity of milk processed daily to 110,000 litres.

The report was released last week during the closure of dairy programme which ran from 2012 to 2016.

The $15 million 5-year programme’s goal, funded by USAID, was to increase competitiveness of Rwandan dairy products in regional markets.

It was implemented by Land O’Lakes International. The first phase of the project was implemented since 2007 at a tune of $6 million.
