Drawing on New Zealand experience to improve the Fiji dairy industry

Drawing on New Zealand experience to improve the Fiji dairy industry

A five-year initiative is drawing on New Zealand experience to improve the productivity and profitability of the Fiji dairy industry and tackle a shortage of fresh milk production in the local market.

The Fiji Dairy Industry Development Initiative (FDIDI), which got underway in 2015, aims to improve farming practices and secure a sustainable domestic milk supply into the future.

The FDIDI is a bilateral aid project supported by the Fiji and New Zealand Governments.

Prime Consulting International Ltd is managing the activity on behalf of the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) — the organisation that oversees the New Zealand Aid Programme.

Prime is drawing on its knowledge and experience of New Zealand dairy farming systems and adapting it to the Fiji environment.
