The dairy sector in the India has shown remarkable development in the pastdecade and India has now become one of the largest producers of milk and value-added milk products in the world. The dairy sector has developed through co-operativesin many parts of the State. During 1997-98, the State had 60 milk processing plants withan aggregate processing capacity of 5.8 million litres per day. In addition to theseprocessing plants, 123 Government and 33 co-operatives milk chilling centres operatein the State.Indian dairy industry: Dairy is a place where handling of milk and milk products is done and technologyrefers to the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. Dairy technologyhas been defined as that branch of dairy science, which deals with the processing ofmilk and the manufacture of milk products on an industrial scale. In developed dairying countries such as the U.S.A., the year 1850 is seen as thedividing line between farm and factory-scale production. Various factors contributed tothis change in these countries, viz. concentration of population in cities where jobs wereplentiful, rapid industrialization, improvement of transportation facilities, development ofmachines, etc. whereas the rural areas were identified for milk production, the urbancentres were selected for the location of milk processing plants and productmanufacturing factories. These plants and factories were rapidly expanded andmodernized with improved machinery and equipment to secure the various advantagesof large-scale production. Nearly all the milk in the U.S.A. before 1900 was delivered asraw (natural) milk. Once pasteurization was introduced, it developed rapidly. Mechanicalrefrigeration helped in the rapid development of the factory system of market milkdistribution.
The highest milk producer in the entire globe – India boasts of that status. India isotherwise known as the ‘Oyster’ of the global dairy industry, with opportunities galore tothe entrepreneurs globally. Anyone might want to capitalize on the largest and fastestgrowing milk and milk products market. The dairy industry in India has been witnessingrapid growth. The liberalized economy provides more opportunities for MNCs andforeign investors to release the full potential of this industry. The main aim of the Indian dairy industry is only to better manage the nationalresources to enhance milk production and upgrade milk processing using innovativetechnologies. The Indian dairy industry has aimed at better management of the nationalresources to enhance milk production and upgrade milk processing involving newinnovative technologies. Multinational dairy giants can also make their foray in theIndian dairy market in this challenging scenario and create a win-win situation for both. In India, dairying has been practiced as a rural cottage industry since the remotepast. Semi-commercial dairying started with the establishment of military dairy farms
and co-operative milk unions throughout the country towards the end of the nineteenthcentury. During the earlier years, each household in those countries maintained its ‘familycow’ or secured milk from its neighbor who supplied those living close by. As the urbanpopulation increased, fewer households could keep a cow for private use. The high costof milk production, problems of sanitation etc., restricted the practice; and gradually thefamily cow in the city was eliminated and city cattle were all sent back to the rural areas. Gradually farmers within easy driving distance began delivering milk over regularroutes in the cities. This was the beginning of the fluid milk-sheds which surround thelarge cities of today. Prior to the 1850s most milk was necessarily produced within ashort distance of the place of consumption because of lack of suitable means oftransportation and refrigeration. The Indian Dairy Industry has made rapid progress since Independence. A largenumber of modern milk plants and product factories have since been established.These organized dairies have been successfully engaged in the routine commercialproduction of pasteurized bottled milk and various Western and Indian dairy products.With modern knowledge of the protection of milk during transportation, it becamepossible to locate dairies where land was less expensive and crops could be grownmore economically. In India, the market milk technology may be considered to have commenced in1950, with the functioning of the Central Dairy of Aarey Milk Colony, and milk producttechnology in 1956 with the establishment of AMUL Dairy, Anand. The industry is still inits infancy and barely 10% of our total milk production under goes organized handling.NATIONAL DAIRY DEVELOPMENT BOARD
National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) was founded to replace...Exploitation with empowerment,Tradition with modernity,Stagnation with growth, An instrument for the development of India’s rural transforming dairying into aninstrument for the development of India’s rural people. Prior to NDDB, the milk market was vastly governed by local private dairy andthese dairies were neither producing milk nor they were animal breeders and hence lawof demand and supply was unheard by those whose intentions were purely to makemore money from both the sides – that is from producers of milk (farmers) andconsumers at large. Establishment of NDDB broke that spell and traders were side linedin due course. The National Dairy Development Board was created in promote, finance andsupport producer-owned and controlled organizations. NDDB’s efforts are co-operativeprinciples and the Anand Pattern of Co-operationPhilosophy of NDDB 1. Co-operation is the preferred form of enterprise, giving people control over theresources, through democratic self governance. 2. All beneficiaries, particularly women and under privileged, must be involved inco-operative management and decision making. 3. Technological and evolution search for better way to achieve the objective inthe dynamic market. The NDDB was created in 1965, fulfilling the desire of the Prime Minister of India– the late Lal Bahadur Shatri – to extend the success of the Kaira Co-operative MilkProducers union (Amul) to other parts of India.
That success combined the wisdom and energy of farmers with professionalmanagement to successfully capture liquid milk and milk product markets whilesupporting farmer investment with inputs and services. NDDB began its operations with the mission of making dairying a vehicle to abetter future for millions of grassroots milk producers. The mission achieved thrust anddirection with the launching of “Operation Flood”, a programme extending over 26 yearsand which used World Bank loan to finance India’s emergence as the world’s largestmilk producing nation. Operation Flood’s third phase was completed in 1996 and has toits credit a number of significant achievements. As on March 2001, India’s 96,000 dairy co-operatives integrated through a threetier co-operative structure – “The Anand Pattern”, owned by more than ten millionfarmers, procure an average of 16.5 million liters of milk every day. The milk isprocessed and marketed by 170 milk producers’ co-operative unions which, in turn, own15 state co-operative milk marketing federations. NDDB also promotes other commodity-based co-operatives, allied industries andveterinary biological on an intensive and nation-wide basis. Dr. (Ms) Amrita Patel servesas the Chairman of NDDB; Dr. Varghese Kurien was the founder Chairman.
