KIGALI – On June 18, 2018, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through its Private Sector Driven Agricultural Growth Project (PSDAG), officially launched its partnership with Masaka Creamery, an American-owned company based in Rwanda that produces cultured dairy products (yogurt, cheese and butter.)
Masaka Creamery used a 234 Million RWF grant from USAID to acquire new dairy processing equipment, cold storage equipment, and milk quality laboratory equipment.
These investments will also increase the incomes of farmers who supply Masaka Creamery with milk and will help to meet market demand and quality requirements.
The event took place at the new Masaka Creamery’s factory in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ), Gasabo District.
