JKMPCL eyes `100 cr turnover by 2020
Will install 31 BMCs by next March
Srinagar, Oct 12: To deal with the problem of “improper storage” the J&K Milk Producers’ Co-operative Limited (JKMPCL) will be installing 31 Bulk Cooler Machines by March next year.
“The Cooperative has received Rs 3.76 crore under Clean Milk Project, a centrally sponsored scheme, for the purpose, and the tendering for acquiring the machines has already been started,” Chairman JKMPCL, Dr Muhammad Deen told Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of bonus distribution function held at Chesmashahi Milk here.
“The project is aimed at strengthening infrastructure for quality and clean milk production,” he said.
Under the project, Dr Deen said 31 BCMs will be installed at the strategic points on different milk routes ‘to reduce the problem of souring and cuddling’.
The chairman said the farmers will get training to collect milk properly considering cleanliness.
According to him the Rs 3.76 crore project was approved some months back in a meeting of Technical Monitoring Committee.
He said the major share of funds would be utilized for the setting up of cold storages.
On the occasion Minister for Consumers Affairs and Public Distribution (CA&PD) and Transport Qamar Ali Akhoon distributed Rs 15 lakh as bonus among the milk producers of JKMPCL.
The program was attended by over 400 dairy farmers.
The chairman said during 2010-11 the organization procured 55 lakh litre of milk at Rs 840 lakh and after processing the 58 lakh litres of pouch milk were sold at Rs 1151 lakh.
He said the ghee, curd and flavoured milk worth Rs 124 lakh were produced and sold during the same period.
The total turnover of the organization was more than Rs 13 crore during the past year.
The vision of the organization for 2020 is to reach Rs 100 crore turn over, he added.
