Understanding Milk: Sifting the Real from the Clones

Exercise choice, but shun activism- it hurts the farmer, it hurts the poor, it hurts nutritional security, and it hurts common sense. Let your choice be an INFORMED one, based on facts and science not merely on belief and sentiments. And please do allow the others too to exercise this right of choice, especially the overwhelming numbers who like, and are conditioned to begin, and maybe even end, their day with a glass of milk; curd, paneer, ice cream et.al. served their way during the day.

A Milk Moustache for the Economy

The Indian dairy sector has been registering a consistent annual growth of over 6 percent for the last several years. We account for some 22 percent of the global milk production with each year seeing India add more milk to the global pool than the entire European community. For a nation, which is still to shed the tag of being a developing entity despite its enormous size, it is no mean achievement to be sitting atop the world in this most critical food and livelihood sector. Further, this position is not likely to be challenged in either the near or distant future.

Milk the Opportunities — Don’t Cow Down to Challenges

A global giant in production, yet a dwarf in productivity; this is what aptly defines Indian dairy. At a milk production of 188 million metric tonnes (mmt) during 2019, we are the world leader by several miles. The second placed United States of America recorded only half of this quantity at 98.72 million metric tonnes during this period.
