Belpata Dairy Cooperative
Dairy is a priority sub-sector for Dailekh and there is strong demand for milk and value added dairy products. Developing a scaled up commercial diary will enable inclusion of a wider base of milk producers in the value chain.
Programme activities will expand the milk producers supply chain in an inclusive manner with producers benefitting from scale-up of production and fair prices, demonstrating that commercial dairy is a viable business.
