Introducing milky boost

Zambia is experiencing a growing demand for dairy products, which can help to fulfill a key part of human nutrition requirements. However, many of the new dairy products on the market contain high quantities of sugar and low-quality ingredients, while intensive marketing campaigns lead the consumers to believe that the products are healthy because they contain milk. Like in many developing countries, a large part of the Zambian population suffer from micronutrient deficiencies and have limited access to nutritious and affordable foods.

To respond to this challenge, a consortium of international partners was established in 2018 between Finta Farms (Finta), Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI), Tetra Pak Southern Africa, BASF and the Scaling-up Nutrition Business Network (SUN) in Zambia.

The project aims to serve as inspiration for other commercial, for-profit partnerships related to affordable nutrition. The project supports the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG 2 “End Hunger”, SDG 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production” and SDG 17 “Partnership for Goals”.
