Khmer-Australian cows bringing fresh milk to Cambodia

PHNOM PENH: Ambassador Kang and Senior Trade Commissioner Rebecca Ball today visited Kirisu farm to see some of the 550 Holstein cows brought across from Australia to start Cambodia’s first large scale local dairy.

Through CAVAC, the program is supporting Kirisu Farm to upgrade their dairy products to obtain international Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 and linked the farm with local farmers to help grow fodder as cow feed.

Kirisu is now producing 12,000 litres of high grade milk a day as well as yoghurt and other delicious products which Ambassador Kang had a chance to sample.

Increased availability of locally produced, high quality milk will promote good nutrition and healthy development for Cambodian kids.

And with 900 calves already born in Cambodia since the dairy commenced operations, we hope to see a successful dairy industry growing here with Aussie heritage!
