  • To Study on Consumer Satisfaction Level towards Nadini Shubham Milk in Dharwad-Hubli City Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 5 Introduction The history of Indian Milk Products is perhaps as old as Indian civilization itself. Even as our ancestors began to domesticate milch animals, they found innovative ways to convert highly perishable milk into more stable and longer lasting milk products. When we say 'Indian' milk products we tend to distinguish such products from Western milk products such as cheese, yogurt, ice-creams, sweetened condensed milk and butter oil. However, we do have parallels for all such western products in the form of paneer, curd/lassi, kulfi, rabri and ghee . The opportunity provided by increased availability of liquid milk can now be used for efficiently manufacturing and marketing Indian milk products with long shelf life. This will help in tapping the potential demand for Indian milk products in both the domestic and foreign markets. I commend the efforts of Dairy India to combine the learning experiences of the dairy industry in manufacture of Indian milk products with new processes, technologies and modern management Dr V Kurien , Father of White Revolution; Founder-Chairman, National Dairy Development Board; and Chairman, Gujarat Cooperative Milk and Marketing Federation Ltd (Amul)

In 1886. The department of defense of the British government establishes the drain forms for the supply of milk to British troops in Allahabad. Later, 1920; various steps were taken by Mr. William Smith, an expert in dairy forming to improve the milk production. There was discrimination done to the Indians. In Luknow, in 1937, called "The Luknow Milk Producers co operative Union Ltd". The dairy and animal husbandry received attention after the independence. There was lot man of progressive steps taken by the government through five (5) year plans. Indian councils for the agriculture research mostly drew up these plans. Further, our late Prime Minister Lai Bahaddur Shastri felt the need for setting up co-operative society throughout the country for the sake of rural development. This led to the formation of "National Dairy Development Board" in 1965. This board was registered under the society's registration act and public trust act, having its office at Anand, Gujarat. The dairy and Animal Husbandry received serious attention after the independence. There were lots many of progressive steps taken by the government through five year plans. This led to the formation of National Dairy Development Board in 1965 & thus in 1970 he decided to Bring a ― White Revolution‖ through out the country, Initially 10 states were selected were for this purpose excluding Karnataka. In Karnataka in 1974 an integrated project was launched to restructure and reorganize the dairy industry on Co-operative principle of AMUL and to lay foundation for new direction in dairy industry.

It should have an overhead tank of adequate capacity or should be connected to large water mains of a municipal water supply. • Size of the firm or dairy Size of the firm is a factor to be decided by the operator depending upon his managerial kept ability and availability of land, proposed number of milk capacity and capital investment. • Lighting Good lighting is required for quality control, clearing and prevention of worker fatigue and accidents. • Building The dairy should construct with masonry walls with fire resistant roof. The installation and adhesives for cold store should be incombustible type. Cold store and hardening rooms are to be fitted with alarm bells to avoid leek in incidents. • Compressor room High capacity compressor should be fitted with safety device to prevent build up of dangerously high pressure, which could develop if the compressor

Because the causes fire attributes directly or indirectly to defect electrical installation, • Boiler room A boiler is essential for a dairy to supply hot water and stream used in various; operations such as washing, sterilizing. Pasteurization, condensing and drying, etc. • Distance from the Market The dairy should be established at a convenient distance so that there is market facility both for selling milk and milk products, for buying concentrates or other requirements of the firm. Since dairy products need immediate disposal especially liquid milk, the nearness to the market is an added advantage though large farming may facilitate transportation by trucks: nearness will save a lot of botheration

It is a complete food. It has almost all the nutrients which are essential for the growth of human body. Milk may be defined as the whole , fresh, clean lacteal secretion on obtained complete milking of healthy milk animals. Milk is an almost ideal food. It has high nutritive value. It supplies body-building proteins, bone-forming minerals and health-giving vitamins and furnishes energy-giving lactose and milk fat. Besides supplying certain essential fatty acids, it contains the above nutrients in an easily digestible and assimilable form. All these properties make milk an important food for pregnant mothers, growing children, adolescents, adults, invalids, convalescents and patients alike Milk should free from colostrums and should contain minimum prescribed percentage of milk fat and solids non fat.

Milk is an excellent source of calcium and phosphorus, both of which, together with vitamin D, are essential for bone formation.
  • To Study on Consumer Satisfaction Level towards Nadini Shubham Milk in Dharwad-Hubli City Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 50 Vitamins These are accessory food factors which are essential for normal growth, health and the reproduction of living organisms. Milk is a good source of Vitamin A (provided the cow is fed sufficient green feed and fodder), Vitamin D (provided the cow is exposed to enough sunlight), thiamine, riboflavin, etc. Fat (Ghee) Milk Fat (lipid) plays a significant role in the nutritive value, flavour and physical properties of milk and milk products. Besides serving as a rich source of energy, fat contains significant amounts of so-called essential fatty acids (linoleic and arachidonic). The most distinctive role which milk fat plays in dairy products concerns flavour. The rich pleasing flavour of milk lipids is not duplicated by any other type of fat. Milk fat imparts a soft body, smooth texture and rich taste to dairy products. Lastly, milk lipids undoubtedly enhance the consumer acceptability of foods; they also serve the best interests of human nutrition through the incentive of eating what tastes good. Lactose The principal function of lactose (carbohydrate) is to supply energy. However, lactose also helps to establish a mildly acidic reaction in the intestine (which checks the growth of proteolytic bacteria) and facilitates assimilation. Energy value The energy-giving milk constituents and their individual contributions are as follows: Milk fat 9.3 C/g Milk protein 4.1 C/g Milk sugar 4.1 C/g Where 1 C (Food Calorie) = 1000 c (small calorie). Note: The energy value of milk will vary with its composition. On an average, cow milk furnishes 75 C/100 g and buffalo milk 100 C/100g.

During the project I came to know about even though the most of customers are satisfied with Shubham Milk but they are not purchasing it because of reasons like non availability, price and some other reasons. Most of the customers purchase milk which is available easily and don‘t think about the brand or quality. The retailers are also influencing them while purchasing milk. The company maintain the same quality and apply some new improvements which may help it to improve its market.
