A complete technical & financial Feasibility study was prepared, subsidized by the RVO, for the establishment of a dairy processing plant producing yoghurt, ice cream, sterilized milk and sterilized dairy fruit mix with a daily capacity of 70,000 litres milk. The Project included the establishement of milk collection centres in the course of the first years.
A particular aspect of the study was the utilisation of solar power. Under the Zimbabwean conditions the generation of electrical power by means of diesel generators was very expensive and not economical. Therefore solar power was used to generate the bulk of the electrical power required.
