Licensing of milk handling premises is an important activity in regulation of the dairy industry. It facilitates regular inspection of such premises to ensure compliance to milk quality and safety requirements.

Information which might help

Quarterly inspections of milk handling premises are conducted to monitor compliance with the requirements of the Dairy Industry Act Cap 336 and other public health regulations.
The inspection process is automated and well-structured to ensure standardization, objectivity and efficiency. Non compliances are addressed through technical advisory services and other legal procedures
Milk dealers are required to obtain relevant licenses and permits from Kenya Dairy Board.
