How CASA and Nepal Dairy are working together

Project title: Incubate and pilot decentralized decentralized dairy processing to attract investors

Nepal Dairy was supported to decentralize dairy processing by developing the capacity of dairy micro-processors in rural areas. The arrangement enabled skill transfers on processing milk into dairy products and the brokering of a buyback agreement to provide micro-processors with assured markets. The micro-processors also co-invest in the partnership and bear the costs related to establishment and operation. Production of dairy products at local level will increase the processing capacity of the micro-processors, increase their income and facilitate their growth. Furthermore, it will drive demand for raw milk and incentivize farmers to increase milk production
