Dairy industry in India and operations
90% of the milk produced in India is collected from individual farmers by milk collection agents. This collected milk is then transported to a nearby chilling station owned by Specific Dairy or company. A Chilling station maintains the milk temperature at 4 degree Celsius which helps milk from getting spoiled until tanker comes to pick up the milk to main processing plant.
By Tankers, milk is then transported to the processing plant or packing station where they standardise and pack as per the product range they have. From processing plant, packed milk is then transported to Sales office/ Regions in Insulated/Refrigerated Trucks. Again at Sales office/Region Milk is then distributed to the different routes in the region in smaller trucks or autos to milk sales agents.
