Dairy without Borders

The Danish NGO-organization “Dairy without Borders” focus on establishing and supporting minor local projects within the milk and dairy sector in selected developing countries.

Behind the initiative and establishment of Danish Dairy Technicians without Borders (DDTwB), founded in 2015, we find three Danish professional organizations; The Danish Dairy Managers Association, The Danish Dairy Technology Association and The Danish Society of Dairy Technology.

DwB focus areas

Dairy without Borders focus on the following main objectives:

• Establishing and supporting small local and economically viable projects by transferring skills, knowledge and/or training in the milk and dairy sector in selected developing third world countries.

• Creating economically and environmentally sustainable projects that can contribute to lift small local communities/villages to a higher level in terms of use, processing, storage and possible sales of their dairy products.

• Building organized cooperation’s in the selected areas around the projects for the locals’ long-term operation and knowledge sharing, for example, based on the cooperative spirit. Projects do not have any commercial character!
