Driving the Accelerated Transformation of the African Dairy Sector
Video: What is DNA?
Significant change is needed to enable Africa to feed and employ its young, fast-growing population. Global Dairy Platform (GDP) believes investment in East African dairy sectors can improve nutrition and food security, spur economic growth, and support livelihoods across the dairy value chain — especially for millions of smallholder farmers.
Founded by GDP, Dairy Nourishes Africa (DNA), is a 15-20-year, public-private partnership leveraging the collective strength of the global dairy sector and local stakeholders. With dairy processors as the linchpin for transformation, DNA uses a market systems approach to ensure food systems become more resilient, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable. GDP is providing critical technical dairy capabilities in partnership with Land O’Lakes Venture37 (driving inclusive dairy development) and Bain & Company (accelerating the ability of critical dairy enterprises to grow and increase their impact).
