Namibia Dairies (ND) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group –announced that its new Nammilk UHT milk packaging is now available in a 1Ltr Full Cream and Low Fat value brick pack that is easy to store-and-stack.
ND Managing Director, Leonie Prinsloo: “As you are well aware, the Namibian dairy industry has been in the midst of a serious crisis for many years due to challenges such as increased feed costs; the ongoing drought, and unfavorable economic conditions, amongst others. The industry was already impacted long before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of these factors exacerbated by the pandemic, to the point where local milk producers and farmers, have had to and are on the brink of closing their doors. The reduction in local raw milk supply has forced us to find an alternative source of supply to fill the shortfall. This led Namibia Dairies to partner with a credible South African dairy supplier from where we will import our UHT milk while the rest of the Namibia Dairies portfolio, including fresh milk, will still be produced locally.”
Prinsloo thanked Namibians for their loyalty, commitment and support to the brand and called on everyone to continue supporting local in order to create the future they want and grow Namibia together.
