Bringing locally produced fresh milk closer to low-income consumers is the primary ambition of Translait. This brand new inclusive partnership of 2SCALE in Mali focusing on dairy products revolutionizes this sector day by day through local supply.
Mali is a large breeding country with more than 10 million cattle, 31 million goats and sheep, a dairy potential of nearly two billion liters, of which only 800 million can be exploited, according to data from the National Directorate of Production and animal industries (DNPIA). The FAO states that the need for milk consumption is 60 liters per person per year. While the average annual consumption of milk in Mali is still 44 liters per capita, according to the final evaluation report of the national strategy (March 2016, Mali) . Lack of access to this food product is one of the key factors of the low-consumption rate, that Translait aims to address.
