The diets of Ethiopian households is heavily reliant on cereals and is characterised by limited diversity and adequacy among children under 2 years. In 2017, the GAIN Access to Better Dairy partnership was established and supported by Danida. Partners committed to help improve diets of children and mothers, as well as the livelihoods of smallholder farmers, by developing affordable, safe, and nutritious dairy solutions that appeal to children, and are produced and marketed by local dairy processers. The partnership consists of private companies, government agencies, civil society organisations, and universities. Partners bring together their specific expertise to co-develop solutions that are locally produced and affordable for lower income consumer segments.
