7 Challenges These unions face a lot of problems in transporting milk from the primaries to the bulk centres most especially the big unions. Since milk is perishable good, it has to be collected on time Fuel increase has also caused a lot of problems Maintenance of the vehicles and generators is also a problem

8 There is a need to get insulated milk tankers to avoid losses Buy milk coolers to avoid transporting warm milk Most of the milk coolers belong to SALL and members are not allowed to sell milk to other processors and even to repair a generator

9 In conclusion Farmers have put up a milk processing plant in MBARA and it is estimated to cost around 13.2 billion UGX excluding construction of the factory where farmers have invested about 2 bn UGX Thank you
