Traditional milk value chains are a dominating link between millions of farmers (producing 97% of domestic production) and consumers in Pakistan. Development strategies, however, have not been able to capitalise on the potential of these chains, targeting instead, high profile processors. A survey undertaken during 2011 enabled the development of a quantitative model for traditional milk value chains from the farm gate to final consumers in the large urban centre of Lahore. This study describes the key attributes of this chain, its pro-poor potential for affecting the livelihood of farmers, vendors and low income consumers, and avenues of possible policy intervention.
