The Milk Transportation System uses a durable 10-liter container designed specifically to reduce spillage and spoilage. Farmers can milk their animals directly into the container using a detachable funnel, which limits contaminants, helps identify signs of udder infections, and reduces spillage when the container is tipped. The container’s attached lid is then secured onto the container, and the units are stackable for easy transportation from the farm to collection centers that purchase milk.
When the system is used properly it reduces the number of times that milk must change containers, making it much easier to clean and transport.
Not only does this system increase the quality of milk received at co-ops in Kenya, but it also educates farmers on proper sanitation practices.
The Milk Transportation System underwent field testing in Kenya and is now in commercialization under the product name Mazzi™.
