Sodhi was speaking at International Dairy Federation World Dairy Summit (IDF WDS) 2022, being organised at India Expo Centre & Mart here during September 12-15.

India’s share in global production is estimated to nearly double to 45 per cent in the next 25 years from 23 per cent now.

Sodhi highlighted that India’s dairy sector has the most efficient supply chain in the world. The packaging and transportation costs for supplying milk to consumers are very less compared to the global average.
