Cattle fodder manufacturing unit in Pudukudi: Nasar

“The unit will produce 100 metric tonnes of fodder a day, and fulfil the requirement of dairy farmers in Thanjavur, Pudukottai, Sivaganga, Madurai and other districts,” he said, replying to a debate on the demands for grants for his Department.

He said a sugar-free milk kova unit would be set up at the Salem District Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union to increase the revenue of milk producers and meet the increasing demand for sugar-free milk kova. The total allocation for the unit is ₹8 crore.

A modern unit to produce fermented milk products, such as buttermilk and curd, in sachets and cups, will be set up at the Tiruvallur District Co-operative Milk Producers’ Union. “These products can be stored for more time,” the Minister said.

Similarly, condensed milk units will be established in Sholinganallur, Ambattur, Tiruchi and Coimbatore to ensure the quality, aroma and nutrients of milk when packed in sachets. The total allocation for it is ₹2.50 crore.

Mr. Nasar also announced a single-window system for appointing agents for Aavin products. “New milk products will be introduced. The value of the products will be increased, and price will be fixed in comparison with other producers,” he said.

Thirteen congressional members from New England are urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture to intervene on behalf of farmers left in the lurch by Danone SA, the French food giant that owns the Horizon Organic brand.
