Twelve Milk Dairies in Kabale Closed Over Hygiene

Twelve Dairies in Kabale town have been closed over poor hygiene and selling adulterated milk. This was during a joint operation by officials from the Dairy Development Authority, illness Kabale District Veterinary Officer and the Uganda Police.

The team that was led by  Steven Aikiriza, try the Coordinator Dairy Development Authority South Western Region, closed  Kabale Tukore Dairy, Kigezi Dairy Cooperative Society, Rwakaraba Fresh Milk Center, Ambroze Fresh Dairy, Namanya Fresh Dairies, Babasa Dairy, Lords Mercy Diary, Sheilah Dairy, Zack Diary, Hleb Dairy, Asiimwe Fresh Milk and Trustable Dairy.

The dairies were found operating in unhygienic places and unregistered premises. The workers of the diaries were also found working without uniforms, protective gear and health certificates.

Aikiriza says that he was shocked to find that 80 percent of the dairies in Kabale Municipality were selling adulterated milk, which exposes consumers to disease risks.

He says only Beatrice Dairy Farm-BDF and Honest Dairies fulfilled the operational requirements.

Aikiriza says they have ordered the proprietors of the closed dairies to report to police to make their statements, saying they will appear before court.

An employee of Kigezi Dairy Cooperative Society, who spoke anonymous to our reporter, blamed farmers for supplying them with adulterated milk mixed with water.

He explained that at times they don’t check the milk supplied by the farmers
