Operating at the Yirgalem IAIP, Jojo natural milk processing factory is owned by Duoley Food Processing PLC. The factory has a processing capacity of 30,000 liters of milk per day and collects milk from farmers residing within a 60-kilometer (km) radius of the hub. The processing facility established links with approximately 15,000 smallholder farmers to supply milk. The company provides training courses, concentrated feed inputs, as well as interest-free credit to increase the capacity of its suppliers. The processing facility has plans to expand its capacity to 100,000 liters per day and expand its procurement area to a 100-km radius. The expansion is expected to double the number of direct jobs and further increase the number of indirect jobs in and around the park. The factory sells its dairy products to the local market and is working towards export to nearby African markets.
