Kenya Dairy Board is partnering with the Eastern and Southern Africa Dairy Association (ESADA) to implement an Annual Dairy Industry Award scheme termed Kenya Dairy Industry Award.
The Kenya Dairy Industry Annual Awards seeks to identify and reward some of the value chain actors who have adopted practices and technologies to enhance good animal husbandry practices, enhance efficiency in milk collection.
Efforts in innovation and new product development, implementation of quality assurance programs and gender mainstreaming in the dairy value chain will also be awarded.
Details of the unique practices implemented by the winners will be shared during the award ceremony to provide lessons to other value chain actors who are striving to meet the demands of a highly competitive market environment. Adoption of best practices in the industry would enable the country to deliver dairy products to markets around the world competitively.
To enhance adoption of good practices in the industry, the award scheme will also provide a platform for sharing innovations and experiences amongst stakeholders and hence create an impetus transitioning the industry into a more productive and competitive dairy industry that meets not only local but international standards.
