Malaysia: Agriculture Ministry says aims to make Malaysia self-sufficient in milk by 2025

The government is aiming for self-sufficiency in local fresh milk production within the next five years, said Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Salahuddin Ayub.

According to him, the country’s Self-Sufficiency Level (SSL) for fresh milk stood at 61.44 per cent as of last year, with efforts undertaken to increase production through the implementation of the National Dairy Industry Development Programme since 2017.

“The demand for fresh milk in 2018 was 67.1 million litres and out of that, almost 40.36 million litres of fresh milk were produced locally while the rest imported from New Zealand and Australia.

“The National Dairy Industry Development Programme aims to increase the production of fresh milk by adding another 20 million litres through the importation of 10,000 pregnant dairy cows within five years,” he said here, today.
