Identification and Selection of Co-Investors in Milk Aggregation

  1. Introduction

CPD with the support of Somalia Stability Fund (SSF) is implementing the Economic Development and Livelihood Project targeting Dhusamareb District and by extension Adado District. The project aims at supporting the livestock producers, aggregators and milk retailers (Milk value chain actors) in addressing the challenges they encounter working jointly to provide solutions that will see to increased milk production, sales and a rise in the income for local pastoralist livelihoods.

In line with the above, the project seeks to identify 3 milk aggregators for a joint co-investment in the bulking of milk from the individual producers in the two Districts for onward sale to the retailers. The aggregator’s role will be important in ensuring the milk produced in the District is able to get to the customers in its fresh form. This will mean having commercial milk cooling facilities with a capacity to handle 1,000 to 3,000 litres per day ready for onward sale to the milk retailers in and outside the two Districts.

CPD is therefore calling on interested milk bulking companies or individual traders (who are involved in the business of purchase of milk from producers and sale to milk retailers) to submit their proposals for prequalification.
