In pastoral areas, the impact of the drought on livestock has led to a lack of access to milk thereby increasing the consumption of milk powder.
Low Milk Quality: Poor milking hygiene practices (both on-farm and post-farmgate) leads to inferior quality production. Unsatisfactory management practices and cold chain logistics can be a cause of irregular training and uninformed farmers who carry lesser knowledge on operational procedures. More number of milk cooling units can be placed in proximity to farmers in their villages with an objective to fill this gap
Increase in Imports: Demand of powdered milk, especially whole and skimmed milk powder increased among food processors and manufacturers thus, leading to sharp increase in the imports from Middle East and Europe. Further due to seasonal fluctuations, delayed and sporadic rainfall is jeopardizing livelihoods and food security of thousands of Somali families. In pastoral areas, the impact of the drought on livestock has led to a lack of access to milk thereby increasing the consumption of Concentrated Milk.
Increase in Households: Increase in Population (15.4 million in 2019 from 13.7 million in 2014) and increasing adoption as an alternative to milk has boosted the sales. The development of advanced technologies in milk powder is driving the attention of the people towards the consumption of milk powder. The escalating preference for organic variants and clean label products that are free from additives, artificial preservatives or chemicals is acting a major growth-inducing factor.
Due to the demand supply gap of fresh liquid milk, majority of the milk powder is reconstituted into liquid milk and is widely used in Somalia because of reduced transport and storage costs (reduced bulk and weight, no refrigerated vehicles).
Smaller packaging i.e. single serving sizes gained traction among smaller household sizes as consumer started demanded products which can consumer on-the-go. Increasing health and wellness awareness coupled with expansion among distribution channels such as convenience stores, supermarket and hypermarket chains have boosted the sales.
