Empowering Dairy Business
A United States Department of Agriculture ‘Food for Progress’ Program Funded Project
Who We Are
Market-Oriented Dairy (MOD) Project, based in Sri Lanka, is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) ‘Food for Progress’ initiative and implemented by International Executive Services Corps (IESC), a Washington, DC-based not-for-profit organization.
The project aims to double the milk production of participating dairy farmers and enable them to obtain a higher price premium for fresh milk through interventions primarily designed to enhance their technical knowledge and create an entrepreneurial, business-oriented mindset. The project also supports enterprises along the dairy value chain to meet the demands of the country’s dairy sector to catalyze a sustainable growth.
The project's sub-partners are University of Florida (UF), Sarvodaya, Global Dairy Platform (GDP) and Small Enterprises Assistance Funds (SEAF).
