Today, June 28, 2018, USAID’s Business Ecosystem Project (BEP), together with Macedonian firms Zdravje Radovo, Sano, Ekoshar and Marancho, launched an initiative to help dairy farmers in Pelagonia modernize their milk production by co-investing in modern farming equipment and regional tranings that will be put to use on multiple dairy farms in the Pelagonia region to increase milk quality and yeilds. The new technology and know-how will make the region’s dairy farmers more competitive, enabling them to increase revenue and employment.

BEP Chief of Party Mirjana Makedonska highlihted the importance of agribusinesses investing in the development of their supply chains, saying “Donor and public sources of funding are important for Macedona’s economic development, but true self-reliance can only be achieved on the foudnation of a strong private sector. The companies that decide to co-invest with USAID in the modernization of dairy farming do so because they consider it good business sense. By investing in the farms in their supply chains, they are opening up expansion opportunities for their own businesses,” she said.
