The dairy sector in the Ethiopian Highlands: The place of traditional fermented milk products
In Ethiopia, around 97-98% of the annual milk production is accounted by the traditional milk production system, which is dominated by indigenous breeds. Most of the milk produced in the country is accordingly processed on-farm using traditional technologies that are generally not well understood. The very few enterprises currently operating in and around the capital depend on the traditional sector for the majority of their milk supply. These underscore the importance of understanding the traditional sector to render improvement interventions possible.
