Since 1981, Land O'Lakes has been
building thriving agricultural
economies across Africa.

Transforming lives across Africa

For more than three decades, Land O’Lakes International Development has implemented programs in several African countries, facilitating targeted technical expertise and impact investments that empower local communities to build sustainable and competitive enterprises. The main focus has and continues to be in the dairy, livestock and agricultural sectors with the goal of improving production, value addition and marketing to positively transform African lives.
 
Our strategy in Africa encourages the private sector and social investments necessary to harness local economic opportunities. We facilitate innovative business models, new technologies and systems that improve production efficiencies, enhance the competitiveness of various value chains, advance women’s leadership in economic activities and nutrition. 
 
Land O’Lakes’ consistent and extensive support to the dairy sector in Africa has proven to be a powerful means to decrease poverty and increase the food security of the region, while at the same time encouraging private-sector development and economic stability. The goal of our Africa dairy development initiatives is to promote the growth of the dairy sectors in each country to begin to meet local and export demand, thus increasing food security and improving health standards for these nations.

We are currently implementing several other programs across the continent in various agricultural, dairy and livestock value chains, energy and nutrition with special focus on supporting sustainable innovative and market-driven solutions to addressing the endemic poverty, starvation and under-nutrition of targeted communities, with the aim of positively transforming lives and bringing prosperity to Africa. 
 
Land O’Lakes strives to maintain its leadership position of supporting positive impact in Africa through our newest strategy of facilitating enterprise acceleration.
