Travel Experience

A socially-responsible enterprise consisting of a commercial dairy and production facility to make products such as yoghurt, cheese and ice cream for local and overseas customers.

Responsibility

Laos Buffalo Dairy cooperates with people from villages in and around Luang Prabang by renting their buffalo, which provides the families with a regular income stream from an underutilised resource, namely female buffalo; male buffalo being sold for meat. We built a facility for milking their buffalo and keeping them well fed, healthy and safe. The daily running and operation of the dairy allowed us to create 30 full-time positions, which we offered to the farmers who have been helping us on the land since the beginning.
