Philippines aims to achieve dairy self-sufficiency in five years


The Philippine dairy industry will try to increase dairy production by 10% and achieve self-sufficiency within five years. According to Isidro Albano of the Dairy Industry Confederation of the Philippines, the industry will squarely face the challenge of producing 99% of the local dairy production which depends on imports.

Currently, Filipino producers account for 1% of the total demand the country only produces 1% of domestic production.  The goal of achieving self-sufficiency would include herd build-up, importing dairy cattle breeds like Girolando and proper care for dairy cattle, including carabao, cows and goats.
