About 80 million rural household are engaged in milk production with very high proportion being landless, small & marginal farmers. The Minister emphasised that while India is the largest milk producer in the world a lot of attention needs to be paid to the quality aspect by the milk unions. The Minister urged the FSSAI and BIS to be strict about milk adulteration and exhorted the milk unions not to buy adulterated milk.Milk Unions should keep in mind the welfare of farmers and pay attention to feed and fodder and infrastructure for quality clean milk.The Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying organised a workshop on Quality Milk Programme at Pusa in New Delhi today.

In the first phase, a central laboratory has been approved for cooperative level for 18 states. Village level co-operative societies will also be considered for facilitating the testing of contaminants in the next phases of the scheme to create trust among the farmers as well as to create consumer confidence.Strengthening laboratories in dairy plants will help in ensuring the consumption of safe milk and to promote export. India exports only 0.01% of the world dairy export market.
