Milk Processing

In a significant move, the group entered the dairy sector through the establishment of the Pearl Dairy Farms Ltd.(PDFL) in Uganda in 2012. This company is engaged in the production, distribution and sales of an ever growing portfolio of dairy products. The milk processing plant in the Mbarara district of Uganda was recently awarded the Platinum award for large scale manufacturing by the Dairy Development Board of Uganda.

The products are sold across the globe under the brand name “Lato Milk”. Lato milk has an ambitious road-map that aims to create a complete range of consumables that include, fresh milk, flavored milk, condiments, spices and sauces.

The enterprise of the setup is to help the local dairy farmers by generating a constant demand for milk in the region. As a part of this effort, a network of 18,000+ farmers now supply fresh milk to PDFL on a daily basis directly or through many co-operatives setup in the region. This constant demand ensures a dignified lifestyle for the farmers and their families.
