Women virtually march to ECOWAS to save local milk in West Africa

On Dec. 2, women in West Africa gathered online to save the local milk market in West Africa which is overrun with palm oil-fattened milk powder from Europe. They say this powdered milk, sold up to 50% cheaper than local milk, weakens our milk producers. Badly labeled, this milk can be confused with real milk without having the nutritional qualities. This can harm your health and that of your children.
