Innovative Agro Industries

Everyday People: Joseph Ovia

Before I came here, I taught in two schools in the Central Province.

I’m a presenter in the Milk in Schools program because I am a qualified teacher too. I really enjoy this programme because it’s also educational for myself since I’m not a nutritionist.

When it’s time to prepare the lessons, I have to go on the internet to do my own research and that’s where I learn new things. I feel like a nutritionist too, and not just an ordinary primary school teacher.

Local farm to begin producing dairy products

Ilimo Farm is run by agricultural developer Innovative Agro Industries (IAI) and will be launching a new line of dairy products.

IAI Chairman Ilan Weiss said people mainly have access to processed milk due to the high cost of imported fresh milk as very few retail outlets stock fresh milk in the capital.

Weiss said they aim to put a litre of healthy fresh milk on the shelves for consumers at a cost of between K6 and K7.
