Maziwa plus is an innovative solar powered milk cooling and monitoring system powered by sustainable and clean energy for smallholder dairy farmers. It is mounted on a motorbike and helps farmers to deliver milk safely from the farm to the dairy cooperative or the point of sale.
Maziwa plus prevents loss of milk through spoilage due to heat while on transit to the dairy cooperative or to the point of sale. This is a conservation technology supporting food security in the Big Four Agenda.
This is an innovation by Emmastella Gakuo, a young innovator, who is a beneficiary under the Kenya National Innovation Agency (KENIA) Programme for supporting product development and commercialization of innovations.
