SITE’s work in Kenya's warm milk trade has been an iterative process, relying on numerous types of facilitation to address each challenge as it unfolded, incentivizing a fragmented informal sector without lead firms to collaborate, improve its performance and increase the benefits to its participants. By demonstrating the benefits to regulation and formalization, there has been significant upgrading in the value chain, crowding in of new entrants, and substantial increases in the volumes of milk traded and profitability for the actors.
