Pathway to sustainable dairy

Sri Lanka has the ambition of becoming self-sufficient in high-quality dairy production. Both a major challenge and opportunity! In addition to upscaling and acquiring the latest techniques, this requires primarily a different approach to dairy. The key to success is the availability of appropriate dairy knowledge.

Why the Dutch

Before becoming a leading country in dairy production, the Netherlands was confronted by the same challenges now facing Sri Lanka. In this process, we discovered that for us simply building more farms, or mega farms, with a 1000 plus cows – as in the U.S., Australia and Brazil – was not the future. We came to the realization that the strength of our dairy industry was in the development of family farms. Recognizing this is what has defined our success. It’s all about finding the right balance between acquiring the latest techniques and materials, and coming to the right solutions. Sri Lanka and the Netherlands have a track record of working together successfully in the dairy sector. We would like to continue this tradition, and to help Sri Lanka develop a sustainable, self-sufficient dairy sector.
