Dairy farmers from the North Rift are upset at how influx of milk imports from Uganda is ruining business for them.

The farmers want immediate intervention from parliament and the Kenya Diary Board.

According to an article written by the standard, Tom Nyagecha the secretary general of Kenya National Federation of farmers said that there is an increase of Ugandan Milk in Kenya and this is because of low production costs in Uganda which give way to processors to sell their products at low prices.

In Uganda processors get their milk from farmers at low prices, as low as sh10 per liter which is a disadvantage to Kenya who get their milk between ksh25-ksh30 hence people opting for the Ugandan milk.

This comes amid complaints of foreigners invading the Kenyan market leaving local businesses with a scarce market for their products.
