About this partnership

This partnership brings FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan and Engro Foundation together with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to improve productivity for female-run smallholder dairy farms in Punjab, Pakistan. FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan, the second largest dairy producer in Pakistan, aims to scale its existing dairy operations by training smallholder farmers to increase productivity and link them to input suppliers.

This partnership aims to create a scalable and sustainable model that improves dairy yield productivity for smallholder farmers and strengthens the supply chain for FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan. Increased milk quantities will reduce average costs of the current supply chain. Smallholder farmers will improve their farming practices resulting in increased incomes and improved standard of living.

*This partnership was extended from its original closing date of June 2021.
