Laiterie Maminiaina, based in Antsirabe since its creation in 2009, is run by Serge Randriamahefasoa, a Malagasy entrepreneur with strong roots in the dairy triangle, his native region.
Number 1 for cheese in Madagascar, Laiterie Maminiaina currently works with 750 breeders, employs around 50 people in its factory, and distributes its products through a network of 8 sales outlets in the capital and Antsirabe.
The entrepreneur's ambition is to raise his profile in the dairy products market and join forces with an international player in dairy or agri-food processing.
Partnership with Miarakap
The company is financed by Miarakap, I&P's partner in Madagascar.
The funds raised will enable the company to double its supply capacity, with the number of partner farmers rising to 3,000 (i.e. +15,000 people affected) by 2027.
The partnership with Miarakap will also enable the dairy to acquire new machinery and set up infrastructure in line with international standards. Laiterie Maminiaina will be able to diversify its products to meet consumer demand.
Miarakap positions itself as the entrepreneur's strategic partner, not only in the field of finance, but also in other important aspects of the business (marketing, human resources, production, etc.), and provides the entrepreneur with a useful external vision to help him make the best decisions.
