Kenyan camel milk brand wins FDA approval

Business Daily reports that Vital Camel Milk, sub-Saharan Africa’s only processed camel milk brand, has broken into the world’s biggest economy after a two-year application process. The product has finally received the approval of the Food and Drugs Administration in the United States. Now that the FDA has certified it, the product can be exploited commercially throughout the US.

The milk is processed mainly from the company's plant in Nanyuki, Kenya, under an initiative supported by Northern Rangelands Trust, a non-governmental organisation that promotes community-based conservation and economic initiatives in Northern Kenya. Last year Vital Camel Milk threatened to relocate its operations to Ethiopia and Northern India, due to the slow pace of at which the Kenyan government was moving in placing measures to regulate and develop the industry.
