Govind Milk and Milk Products Pvt Ltd was established in the year 1995 with an intention to help the farmers who were suffering at the hands of local vendors, situated in Phaltan, district Satara, Maharashtra. Govind Milk in a few years has emerged as a renowned and quality conscious brand for milk and milk products not only in the state of Maharashtra but also in other adjoining states as well.
The production facility at Phaltan is a prime milk shed area, resplendent with abundant water, fodder and power supply. This feature adds to Govind’s in-built efficient milk processing systems.
At Govind, the best procurement and processing systems are practiced to process milk and produce milk products. A well planned system functions perfectly in tandem with the cattle farmers for fresh milk procurement. There is excellent connectivity between the farmers and bulk coolers to transport and store the collected milk.
The state of the art machinery helps processing the milk and manufacturing milk products like ghee, butter, shrikhand, amrakhand, lassi, skimmed milk powder etc.
A fully integrated dairy processing unit with the capacity to process 2.5 lac litres, at par with international standards is currently used at our facilities in Phaltan.
An efficient front end of our dairy unit is supported with an equally robust back end. Well maintained and harmonious relations with the cattle farmers, providing them timely veterinary guidance and services and imparting the required knowledge on latest techniques helps to increase the yield.
In the recent past we have educated farmers on loose housing, calf rearing, balanced feed production, thereby achieving extraordinary results. Govind’s symbiotic association with cattle farmers is reciprocated in every upgrade of technology or process benefiting the community at large.
The procurement capacity of the existing facility is 2.5 lac litres of milk of which around 1.9 lac litres of milk is sold in retail form through an established distribution channel. The balance milk is used for production of milk products like skimmed milk powder, ghee, butter milk, butter, panner, shrikhand and amrakhand etc.
The sale of milk in pouch packing started in the year 1999 with around 2000 litres/day. The present sale is around 1.9 lac litres per day. This growth is the result of delivering the best quality at a reasonable cost. Govind entered the Karnataka market in September 2009 and in Goa market in March 2010 has seen a steady growth since then. Govinds milk products have also received a good response.
