TİKA Supports Producers of Milk and Dairy Products in Kosovo

As a part of the “Project for Supporting Bosnian Farmers of Peja with Equipment for Production of Milk and Dairy Products”, Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) provided machines used in the production of milk and dairy products to the farmers in Peja and Istog Municipalities in Western Kosovo.

Emilija Rexhep, the Deputy Prime Minister of Kosovo for Minority Issues and Human Rights; Fulya Aslan, TİKA’s Coordinator in Pristina; and producers attended the delivery ceremony.

At the ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Rexhepi stated that she is more than glad to participate in such an event in which TİKA supports the projects of the members of minority communities in Kosovo. Expressing their hope that producers will better organize their works with support from TİKA, Rexhepi said, "I would like to congratulate all of you once again on the project in hopes that we, as the Government of Kosovo, will maintain our partnership with the Turkish government institution TİKA."

TİKA’s Coordinator Aslan also explained that TİKA has carried out various projects in this field to meet the need for food of the people of Kosovo, enhance the agriculture and livestock sector which has a critical position in the country’s economy, and improve the conditions of production.

Drawing attention to the issues due to the inadequacy of animal and agricultural products for the increasing global population and the lack of food security in products, Aslan said, "Today, we aim to allow the production of healthy milk and dairy products, that are processed with modern and sanitary methods through the milk cooling tanks and the equipment for the production of dairy products which we will provide to our dear farmers, and therefore to ensure quality production and food security."

As a part of the project, 10 farmers were provided with machinery used in the production and storage of milk and dairy products.
