Description

From 21-26 September NABC will organize a dairy trade mission to Kenya. Kenya is one of the fastest growing economies in Eastern Africa and especially the dairy sector has shown rapid developments in the past few years. With growing middle class there is increasing demand for high quality dairy products such as processed milk, yoghurt and cheese. Furthermore, Kenya plays a crucial role in the regional dairy development.  In 2011 NABC established the Dutch Dairy Development Partnership including partners from the Dutch private sector, knowledge institutes, development organisations and local Kenyan partners such as dairy farmers and processors. NABC has therefore a vast network of regional dairy contacts.

This trade mission is open for all companies and organisations active in the dairy sector (from farm level to dairy processing).  Whether you want to explore opportunities for your company in Africa for the first time or whether you are already doing business in Kenya, NABC will organize a tailor made programme depending on your wishes.

This trade mission is organized during the African Dairy Conference and Exhibition in Nairobi. NABC will have a Dutch Dairy Pavilion on the exposition promoting Dutch Dairy expertise, knowledge and high quality products for the Kenyan market. An excellent opportunity for you to meet all relevant actors in the Kenyan dairy sector in just one week. If you would like to be part of the Dutch Pavilion, please contact Lars Kramer to register for a stand. 

If you are interested to join this trade mission, register now! The earlier we know about your participation, the better we can prepare a tailor made programme.
