"The New Kenya Co-operative Creameries (KCC) have secured a market for milk products in Middle East worth Sh350 million ($5 million). New KCC chairman, Mr. Matu Wamae, said the creamery had received another order to supply 216 tonnes of powdered milk to Yemen.
"We are earning Sh50 million ($750,000) from powdered milk exported to Yemen every month and we hope the earnings will go up by January," said Wamae. He said the creamery had received another order for 100 million litres of milk from the Middle East and Asia.
Farmers currently produce about 350,000 litres of milk daily, which Wamae said was inadequate to satisfy the demand. "There is a huge demand for milk from the Middle East market and we are urging farmers to increase their output," he said."
