Abstract
This study assessed the status of hygienic practices in the Rwandan milk and dairy chain. Data collection was based on interviews with the help of a survey and site visits to farms, collection centres, milk processing companies, small-scale cheese plants, wholesale points, supermarkets and milk shops. The observed status of good practices was further linked to actual microbiological data. It was concluded that there is a major gap in compliance with hygienic practices leading to higher levels of contaminated dairy products.
