France has extended a concessionary loan of Euro 13.9 million (approximately Rs. 2,514 million) to develop the dairy sector.
 
The proposed project will include a complete modernization of the pre-selected 6 mini dairy cooperative societies and organizations by establishing state of the art equipment chains to produce pasteurized milk and sterilized milk at a capacity of 4,500 liters per day.
 
The high-quality equipment will allow stable, homogenized and high-quality products with computerized monitoring.
 
In addition, technical assistance will also be extended to dairy farmers in order to improve the breeding process by a French non-profitable entity and to carry-out a proper market survey on the dairy sector of Sri Lanka.
 
It is also expected that this initiative will support the government’s ambitious target to achieve self-sufficiency in dairy production by 2020 and to improve the local supply.
