Investment by African Agricultural Capital Fund
Eldoville Dairies Limited is a 20 year old dairy and food processing enterprise that has firmly established itself as a premium processor of premium dairy products, vegetables and juices. The company’s product profile includes cheeses, yoghurts, cream, butter, processed fruits and vegetables. The company has built a reputation of quality and consistency of supply since 1985. Today the company is a major supplier of premium milk products in Kenya primarily and steadily expanding into the East Africa region. The investment of US$ 3.8M million by AACF has enabled the company finance a high quality dairy processing plant in Ol-Joro- Orok, Nyandarua County. The increased capacity will open up the ability for the company meet higher future requirements of raw milk while still maintain the quality of the processed products. Over the next 3-5 years, Eldoville Dairies processing capacity will increase by over 10 and then reinforce the company’s ability to consistently enter markets in the East Africa region and beyond. The opportunity for local smallholder dairy farmers to increase productivity and production in Ol-Joro Orok has also been further reinforced by this relocation.
