Our Plant

Lato Milk is manufactured at the Pearl Dairy Farms Limited in the Mbarara region in Uganda. It is a part of MiDCOM Group’s latest Agro venture.

The plant currently has a milk processing capacity of 500,000 liters per day.

Pasteurization process

Pasteurization is a process that heats every single particle of milk and cools the milk again.

We do milk pasteurization for 2 reasons:

  • To remove all bad/unhealthy bacteria
  • To improve the taste of products such as milk powder, liquid milk and ghee


It is the process that removes or adds cream from the milk. This is how we can make the products with different percentages of fat. Eg. Full Fat Milk, Low Fat Milk, Full Cream and Skimmed Milk.


The process that separates fat and water in milk to make fat globules smaller, so that they stay together in the milk rather than separating out and floating to the top of the jug.
