Dairy Modernisation and Market Access (DiMMA) Programme

Project title: Dairy Modernisation and Market Access (DiMMA) Programme

Project duration: July, 2021- June, 2023

Dairy Modernisation and Market Access (DiMMA) Program is implemented at the initiative of the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture of Georgia, with financial support of International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Georgian Farmers’ Association is implementing the programme in 4 regions of Georgia – Imereti, Samtskhe-Javakheti, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti and Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti.

The program aims to establish and develop a diversified and sustainable dairy sector through the improvement of relevant inventory and infrastructure. It will promote the development of small-scale dairy production via introduction of new standards and international practices.

As a result of the project demonstration farms will be arranged in small and medium-sized milk-producing households, trainings will be conducted, artificial insemination will be encouraged and dairy clusters will be established between actors of the dairy value chain, ensuring strong and effective relationships between them.
