DPMCUs in 12,859 milk societies
  • The minister asked officials of Pradeshik Cooperative Mill Producers’ Federation to adopt advanced technology to increase shelf life of dairy products.
  • The minister said the state government plans to install data processing milk collection units (DPMCU) in 12,859 cooperative milk societies in three years

He said the rate of desi cow milk would be brought on par with the other cow and buffalo milk.

“Desi cow milk contains lesser fat and it could be promoted for fitness conscious people. But for that, perfect marketing of desi cow milk is required,” he emphasised.

He said the kids of those milk vendors who supply milk through Data Processing Milk Collecting Unit (DPMCU) will be awarded scholarships in school. Besides, such milk vendors would be given all facilities to increase milk production.

With the help of DPMCU, milk producers will be getting immediate information about the quality, quantity and the cost of the milk. This will enable direct payments into their account, drive touts out of system and bring in more transparency.

The minister asked officials of Pradeshik Cooperative Mill Producers’ Federation to adopt advanced technology to increase shelf life of dairy products. He said a state-level control room having the data of all the milk producers was being set up.

The minister said the state government plans to install data processing milk collection units in 12,859 cooperative milk societies in three years. At present, 600 societies have installed DPCMU.

On the occasion, he launched assorted sweets prepared by Parag and praised their management for producing quality products despite tough competition in the market.
