Tanzania Dairy Board Encourages Citizens to Drink More Milk
Interesting item from Africa, via IPP Media:
The World Health Organization recommends that people drink 200 litres of milk a year, but the average Tanzanian only drinks 43 litres. The Tanzanian Dairy Board recently announced a "milk drinking week" scheduled for the end of May 2012 to encourage people to drink more and help out local agriculture:
"Despite having millions of cattle, goats and sheep, Tanzania has failed to tap the dairy market.
The country has about 21.3 million cattle 90 percent of which are of indigenous types. It is estimated that annual milk production stands at over 1 billion litres but the rate of milk drinking among Tanzanians is very low.
