Steps on Setting A Milk ATM Business In Kenya

Milk ATM Business In Kenya

A new cash-cow in town and it is known as the milk dispenser or milk ATM. It works like a traditional bank ATM with the only difference being that it swallows coins and gives out milk (simply put).

With so many upcoming estates in our urban centres and with abundance of raw milk from our hardworking farmers, there is absolutely no reason why you should not be milking some profits from this opportunity. Here’s how you can get started.

Step One: Find A Good Location

The secret to success in this business lies in achieving a large volume of sales per day. You therefore should locate your business in an area that is adequately populated. The more walk-in customers your milk ATM can attract, the better. But what if finding such a location proves difficult? Well, worry not.

Make sure the business location is within your budget. Of course, one of your major priorities will be finding a location that fits within your budget. However, that’s not all you need to examine when it comes to money. There often other location-specific costs to consider beyond the purchase price or monthly rent. Almost every location has different hidden costs that you need to account for: taxes, renovations, utility upgrades, minimum wage requirements, and economic incentives. Even mobile businesses need to consider the cost of permits and vehicle licensing when choosing a new business location.

Step Two: Choose A Good Milk ATM Machine in Kenya

Choose a machine that does not strain your budget and one that has enough capacity to sustain your customers’ demand. You can start small with a 200 litre machine and then graduate to a bigger 1000 litre machine as demand rises.

As for purchasing the machine you can buy one locally from Neema Technologies. Locally manufactured machines are cheaper…and as you know, it’s a good idea to BUY KENYA, BUILD KENYA. Here are some tip that will come in handy in your search for a good milk ATM machine.

Step Three: Arrange With Farmers and Suppliers For Milk

Yes your business will be located in the urban centres but in order to get quality and consistent milk supplies you will need to link up with farmers or suppliers. As part of your planning, take time to visit the surrounding rural areas and compare cost before settling on the most feasible source.

Don’t take chances. Have your suppliers sign a contract with you…that way you will be sure they’ll not sell your milk to anyone else and leave your supplies hanging.

  • Look for high quality milk that is not adulterated with water
  • The Kenya Dairy Board requires only pasteurized milk to be sold. Try to find farmers who can supply pasteurized milk…not raw milk.
  • If you can’t find pasteurized milk, don’t worry. You can invest in a pasteurizer from Neema Technologies and be purchasing cheap raw milk. Smart idea!
  • A litre of raw milk will cost you 35/- at the farms while a litre of pasteurized milk will cost you 50/-.

Step Four: Get Licensed

You will need a license from the Kenya Dairy Board which will cost you Ksh2,500 with a one-time application fee of Ksh600.

HINT: Areas that fall in Machakos, Kiambu or Kajiado counties tend to have cheaper single-business permit charges than ones in the core Nairobi despite their proximity to the city (Examples: Ongata Rongai (Kajiado), Syokimau (Machakos), Githurai 45 (Kiambu), Kahawa Sukari(Kiambu), Kahawa Wendani (Kiambu), Ruaka (Kiambu), Mlolongo (Machakos), Kitengela (Kajiado)).
