Investments in dairy products can have significant development impact. IFC recognizes this subsector as key to improving nutrition. Investing in dairy projects can:


  • Reduce the incidence of milk borne illnesses
  • Improve farm practices and animal health, reducing costs, increasing yields and improving quality
  • Secure farm incomes
  • Increase the availability and variety of safe high quality milk products


As of June 30, 2011, IFC's portfolio in the dairy sector was $85 million or 3% of IFC's total agribusiness portfolio.
