Ethiopia is experiencing a growing demand for dairy products, which can make a major contribution to the intake of essential nutrients in the population. However, as a developing country, a large part of the residents do not have access
to dairy products, primarily due to both limited financial resources and availability.
To respond to the challenge of malnutrition in Ethiopia, an international partner consortium was established in 2017 comprising of Ethiopian dairy partners, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Danish Church Aid (DCA), Arla Food Ingredients (AFI), Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) and Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce and Sectoral Associations (AACCSA).
This project aims to serve as inspiration for other commercial, for-profit, partnerships related to affordable nutrition, and deliver on the following United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in Ethiopia: "End Hunger" (SDG 2), "Economic Growth & Decent Jobs" (SDG 8), "Responsible Consumption and Production" (SDG 12), and "Partnerships for Goals"(SDG 17).
