Kilimanjaro Dairy Cooperative Joint Enterprise (JE) Ltd

JE is a new institution that was registered in July 2017 under cooperative Laws Act No. 6 of 2013, by fourteen (14) primary dairy cooperatives that are involved in milk production as their major business with its headquarter at Boma Ng’ombe in Hai District– Kilimanjaro Region.

These dairy cooperatives agreed together to form and implement a Joint Enterprise as an Umbrella body for the Dairy Cooperatives in Kilimanjaro Region. The initial dairy cooperatives that formed the JE include; Chawamando, Nkuu Maziwa, Uduru, Kalali, Kwarungo, Foo, Nronga, Mamba, Sawe, Kyeri, Nguni, Marukeni, Nure and Lukani, all from Hai District.  Later on, four (4) cooperatives from Siha District have joined JE. These coops are Kilingi, Gararagua, Kishisha and Lawate. These make JE currently to have 18 Primary Dairy Cooperatives in which each Primary Cooperative has 30 to 50 members on average. The essence of establishment of the JE of dairy cooperatives in Kilimanjaro was triggered by the intent to become more competitive in the formal dairy industry, which has become one of the main economic pillars for most rural households in Kilimanjaro Region after the decline of the coffee sector and enhances dairy farmer’s livelihood.

JE is one of the implementing partners in the Income and Employment for Women and Youth in Dairy Sector in North-East of Tanzania, which has been supporting JE with capacity strengthening.
