At the request of the Dutch and Myanmar governments, a project team consisting of researchers from Wageningen University & Research centre and experts from dairy processor Royal FrieslandCampina, feed company Royal De Heus and AgriWorks consultancy have developed a design for a dairy cluster in Myanmar. The plan is for the cluster to start with 50 farms that deliver 8,000 kilograms of milk per day. The availability of fodder, the quality of raw milk, and cooperation with local government and dairy experts are considered to be key elements for the success of the cluster. These key elements have to be elaborated further before proceeding to the next steps towards implementation.

This report analyses the business opportunities of the oilseed and edible oil sector in Myanmar as well as the food safety control system. Myanmar is a significant producer of oilseed specialities. It is world’s largest producer of sesame seeds, ranks on the sixth position for groundnut production and for mustard seeds on the third position. However, the exports are insignificant. The food safety control system of this sector is developed weakly. Myanmar has huge opportunities on the world market: foreign currency earnings are in the magnitude of country’s total trade deficit by exporting sesame oil substituted by importing a same amount of palm oil.

The Asian region is a major supplier of fish products to the European market. The aquaculture sector in a number of Asian countries has become an important producer as well as exporter of various captured and cultured seafood products. Since Myanmar is in a transition to democracy and the EU decided to remove most sanctions to fuel economic development, Myanmar is very interesting for the European seafood industry. The Dutch Centre for the Promotion of Import from Developing Countries (CBI) and LEI Wageningen UR decided to conduct this quick scan to analyse the EU market potential of the seafood sector in Myanmar.
