11 Camel Milk characteristics
High Camel milk price in the informal milk market Superior keeping quality (shelf life) - allows it to be supplied to distant urban markets. Medicinal qualities of camel milk- on diabeties, autism; immunity, stomach cleansing; infectious diseases e.g. tuberculosis Unhygienic milk handling practices along the chain result into spoilage of milk and lower income. Traditional consumers who don’t mind the quality Title of presentation (change in master layout)

12 Uniqueness/importance of camel milk chain
Food security -“second god” Medicinal value: Juvenile diabetes; autism The chain is highly informal; trading between family; clan relationships Trading in raw camel milk The chain is dominated by women April 12, 2017

14 Tapping the Camel Milk potential!
Camel milk hygiene – trainings, investment in RE cooling systems, transport Camel milk health and production – feeds, vaccines Enterprise development – turning groups into enterprises Marketing – tapping into the BOP, demand?, nutrition value of camel milk, Kenya CMVC analysis Knowledge development – Research and sharing what is working, inform Policy Title of presentation (change in master layout)

15 SNV and Camel milk SNV started off with VCA of camel milk in 2008
UNIQUE SELLING POINT: Its Medicinal Value! key issues highlighted in the VC analysis: Fluctuating/seasonality in milk productivity Low hygiene practices and quality of milk Poor business orientation of camel producers Limited market development Limited infrastructure and almost absence of policy space. Limited collaboration between chain actors SNV’s Focus has been on enhancing efficiency in the supply and marketing of the camel milk value chain. Title of presentation (change in master layout)

16 Camel milk strategies Commercialization of the camel milk chain i.e. organize traders groups into a cooperative; linking with private sector (processor; financial entities etc) Enterprise development i.e. strengthening Anolei cooperative manage business entity; enhance efficiency of the chain e.g. bulking; support to management of the camel milk bar

17 What is happening? There are pilots in various counties e.g.
KCA –Strategic plan - national, producer group strengtheing, identifying new markets etc Camel milk Value chain - Isiolo CARE, KLMC etc in Garrissa SNV, VSG-S, PACIDA, FHK in Isiolo, Marsabit Research i.e. KARI- innovative transportation, VSF-Suisse – hygiene along the chain Next move - CONSOLIDATION Title of presentation (change in master layout)

18 Market trends in the chain
Supply 3,000-6,000lts i.e. about 12-15% of prod; new - 1,000 to 2000lts coming from south – Kajiado; creates competition Price: Average ksh per lt Women “engage in trading not production” 3 market segments: a) Traditional market – Anolei cooperative b) High-end – Vital camel (500lts) c) Emerging segment (BOP) – ; Halleeb, UCP


20 Preliminary Results Camel milk recognized through government policy
Hygiene risk analysis along the chain (KARI, VSF-SWISS) Develop training program on hygiene practices, testing of quality and grading system along supply lines to end market (with VSF Swiss, FAO) Formation of a women camel milk cooperative Increased supply of camel milk e.g. 5,000-6,000lts supplied from Isiolo, milk from Kajiado A camel milk bar opened in Isiolo New small scale processors – Vital, Haleeb, UCP Use of aluminium cans – 50% adoption Title of presentation (change in master layout)

EU KRDP – SNV, KLMC, ILRI ???? EAAP – KCA USAID – CARE, CNFA KLMC Title of presentation (change in master layout)

22 Key lessons and challenges
Highly socially organized value chain, need time to find entry points There is overwhelming potential for incomes- appropriate business models, structural challenges of pastoral production systems Need to collaborate with other partners to add value (High interest) Requires time investments/ consistency/nurturing to understand VC, build relations and reap benefits.
