New Zealand is a global leader for dairy and beef production
Africa represents a large untapped opportunity
with significant growth potential.|
DBGS brings together New Zealand technology with strong local expertise to develop the African dairy and beef industries.
Dairy & Beef Global Solutions (DBGS) is focused on the acquisition and development of a portfolio of best-in-class dairy and beef farms across key Sub-Saharan Africa (“SSA”) countries to address the substantial, unmet market demand for large quantities of reliable, locally produced, good quality raw milk and meat. DairySolutionz (DSL), a global leader in dairy & beef farming technology with a successful track record at exporting New Zealand best in class technology to tropical climates, is a founding member of DBGS. DBGS shall facilitate transformative investment into the Sector, building its competitive advantage on the DSL technological/biological platforms. Through replicating and scaling DSL’s successful developing market model, DBGS shall establish a platform to locally produce milk and meat of New Zealand/European quality at competitive prices. The strategy shall deliver superior financial returns and significant growth potential. Our projects will be beneficial to local communities as we will create jobs, invest in the communities, and as skill transfer and local management training is at the core of our approach.
The African Opportunity
2nd largest continent in the world, with a land mass of 30.3 million km².
2nd most populous continent in the world with 922 million residents.
Demand for milk and meat is growing across the continent. Projections show an increase of more than 50% in liquid dairy consumption, growing from 15 billion ltrs in 2010 to almost 25 billion ltrs in 20201 and an increase of 29% in bovine meat consumption.
Headroom for Growth in Consumption
African consumption is currently the world’s lowest: Approx. 37 ltrs of milk and 11kg of meat per capita annually, which is less than 1/3 of global averages. Beef accounts for 33% of meat consumption.
The Need for Technology
In some SSA countries, cows produce below 200 ltrs of milk per year, compared to over 12,500 ltrs in developed countries. The cause of these abysmal results is generally the low application of technology.
Strong Impetus for Local Development
Key SSA countries are prioritizing the development of local dairy and beef industries to drive import substitution and create local employment: – Local producers receive high local pricing (often much higher than the international price) & are protected with tariffs; – In some countries, concessionary debt financing is availed to support investments in the local dairy and beef industry.
DBGS has been established by a group of professionals and senior executives with an excellent track record in dairy & beef farming, investments, marketing and with strong experience in both developing and developed markets. DBGS has a unique advantage in that it has a depth of dairy & beef operational and technical experience at its disposal through DSL in addition to investment expertise and local connections. The proprietary farming technology that DBGS shall deploy is based on adapting and transferring New Zealand’s low cost, pastoral-based farming systems and has already been beneficially implemented under tropical climates around the world. DSL,a founding member of DBGS, has been able to execute and deliver several best-in-class projects globally using this technology. These projects/models have proven superior yields & reduced operating costs without compromising quality.
DBGS shall deploy this expertise on a large scale:
DBGS is domiciled in New Zealand, the epicenter of high tech Dairy and Beef R&D and shall benefit directly from the experience and IP of DBGS’ founding members.

NZ know-how increasing economic and social inclusion in Ecuador
Dairy Solutionz is adapting New Zealand technologies and knowledge into the Ecuadorian dairy industry. The Waikato-based company completed a two year project in July 2017 in partnership with Ecuador farmer cooperative AGSO, on the core task of training the Ecuadorian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock Aquaculture and Fisheries’ dairy extension service on how to establish monitor farms that adapt and apply New Zealand pasture based systems in the high tropics.
