Siongiroi Dairy Plant Limited (SDPL) was incorporated in 2000. SDPL is a dairy company that was formed by smallholder farmers in Siongiori, sub-county of Bomet, to organize and manage milk markets with the main objective of improving the economic and social wellbeing of farmers and residents. The firm aggregates milk from smallholder farmers and then chills and markets the milk on behalf of the farmers to two main milk processors: Brookside Dairy Limited and Highland Creamers and Foods Limited, amongst others. SDPL also supplies its farmers/producers with agro-vet products on cash or credit based on their financial strength. Furthermore, SDPL offers extension services such as farmer training, field days, breeding services and others. Through its collaboration with MEDA as part of the M-SAWA project, SDPL aims to support 1,500 SEs (M750, F750) in Bomet and Narok counties to improve their dairy production and marketing of raw milk. This will be accomplished through equipping farmers with improved skills on animal feeding and calf management as well as enhancing milk prices and improving farmers earnings through market research and educating farmers on financial literacy and adoption of appropriate technologies.
