The Banaskantha District Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union Ltd (BDCMPUL) popularly known as Banas Dairy registered highest single day procurement on Friday.
Asia’s largest milk co-operative procured 73.93 lakh litres per day (LLPD) milk – up against last year’s single day peak which was 73.71 LLPD.
“This became possible because of the hard work of our women dairy farmers,” said dairy’s chairman Shankar Chaudhary.
Chaudhary said that Sanadar in Deodar taluka has turned into highest milk supplier to Banas Dairy as the centre has collected 30 LLPD.
“Sanadar has benefited due to its strategic location on Rajasthan border. We are planning to add Sanadar centre as a dairy unit,” he said, adding that work on setting up a dairy plant worth Rs 400 crore will be completed within a year and a half.
Terming dairy industry as lifeline of 4.50 lakh milk producers, who are registered members of the milk union, Chaudhary assured that the dairy will never observe a milk holiday.
