Milk prices to go up, dairy board blames shortage

Milk prices to rise this coming January

The board’s managing director Margaret Kibony says a meeting will be held within the following month to develop measures to avoid any crisis.

Processors have depleted their stock of powdered milk after the shortage that hit the country following the drought earlier this year. There is a lack of excess supplies to produce powdered milk.

As quoted in the Nation Kibogy said, “If there is a severe drought in January, Kenya will be in a crisis given that currently we do not have stocks of powdered milk that normally come in handy in times of shortages.”

According to the meteorological department, rains in the Northern Rift Valley region will stop in the second week of December.

Milk prices had shot to an all-time high following the drought earlier this year with 500ml packets retailing for around Sh65. The prices then dropped by Sh10 and with this expected shortage, the dairy board fears the reductions will be reversed.
