Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Project Portfolio

Quidditas Goat Dairy Farm

Quidditas Farms is a start-up goat milk dairy production company in the south Indian state of Karnataka. Incorporated in 2015, farming operations began in August 2016. Operating as a social enterprise, the company currently produces and processes goat’s milk for sale in India. EMI designed the masterplan for their 21 acre farm in 2015 and has remained involved since with revisions to the building designs and advancing the water system planning.

The vision of Quidditas Farms is to end rural poverty in Gulbarga and beyond by establishing sustainable business and employment opportunities for the rural poor. They aspire to be the premier branded manufacturer of goat’s milk nutritional products in India, transforming the lives of their employees and producers, trusted by consumers and respected for fair-dealing by their suppliers.

The first building to be completed on site is a multipurpose building made up of goat sheds, milk processing and storage areas. In the next phase of the project it will include an expanded milk process facility and in the final phase become the veterinary space.

The construction of this first goat shed served as a prototype for the 30 some sheds to be constructed on this site. The structure has since been value engineered for the next iteration.
