CII Technology division is organizing a virtual “Conference on Dairy Technologies” with the focus on Dairy industry, technology and business on 20 August 2021. Dairy Industry is one of the biggest agri – businesses in India and a significant contributor to the economy. A key factor has been the proliferation of private dairy enterprises that now account for more than 60 per cent of dairy processing capacity in the country. Indian dairy industry has grown at approx. 12 per cent during last 5 years, with value-added products driving market growth. Dairy sector in India is fairly organized and this increasing organized market drives multiple benefits for the sector.

The fundamental challenge in dairy business is maintaining quality and quantity within a diversified supply base. As a perishable, dairy requires more complex supply chain operations and logistics to ensure freshness and safety. Indian markets with the greatest growth potential are also among the least developed in infrastructure and consumer awareness. Supply chain has become increasingly complex in cities with multiple retail outlets. In metro cities, new value-added segments and alternative products have taken off with surprising speed, intensifying competitive pressures and the need to innovate constantly. The main areas that will be the focus for investment in dairy sector incudes Upstream supply management; Milk Processing opportunities; Downstream supply management.

The conference attempts to bring an in-depth knowledge of the existing scenario in the Dairy industry and the emerging trends and technologies for the Indian dairy sector and also bring the dairy business and technology community together, as the future food system will need to be created with input from many disciplines, where the primary aim is to supply nutrition to billions of people world-wide via a balanced nutrient rich diet.
