This project aimed to identify potential project partners in government and private sectors to engage in collaboratively developing viable smallholder inclusive value chain models and coordination approaches to enable smallholder dairy chains to improve access to critical inputs, services, and training; leading to upgrading in production and milking processes (productivity, diary operations) and products (quality, hygiene and safety); and ultimately result in increased smallholder dairy profitability.

The project also aimed to identify how to scale-up and scale out potentially “successful” approaches and build capacity with industry, policy makers and researchers in Indonesia and the Philippines.
