Milk Procurement System: the backbone of Fresh Dairy Products
We, Gopaljee Dairy Foods Private Limited, strive to provide only international quality dairy products to all our customers. One of the biggest factors for the success of our group has been the vast network of milk collection that we have in place. We procure our high quality milk directly from farmers in many villages all over India. Our vast network encompasses more than 1.5 Lakh farmers from over 2500 villages, with the help of 25 milk chilling centers (MCC). The milk collection is done twice daily, in order to maintain the freshness of the milk, it is then transported to the nearest MCC and is stored in refrigerated conditions before it is further sent for processing and packaging.
Village Level Collection Centre (VLCC)
In order to enable smooth and easy procurement of milk from the farmers, we appoint a village service provider (VSP) according to the recommendation of the farmers of respective villages. We install an automatic milk collection system in the village, and the VSP is given proper training. At the VLCC the milk brought in by every farmer is put through a series of tests to ensure highest quality, the rate per liter for the farmers is also calculated on the same. We have more than 300 procurement vans, which follows a particular route while adhering to a particular timetable for both morning and evening shifts
Automatic Milk Collection Unit (AMCU)
Our highly advanced AMCU plays a pivotal role in obtaining fresh and high quality milk from farmers in the villages. The AMCU consists of advanced range of equipments and technology for the measurement and quality checks of the milk procured. The Eco Analyser gives us information about the composition of the milk, the Data Processing unit calculates the amount of milk poured by the farmer. The introduction of the AMCU has made the daily milk related activities much easier as it provides a simple, automatic and fast solution for all record keeping and billing.
Milk Chilling Centre (MCC)
In order to maintain the freshness and superior quality of milk, we refrigerate the milk withing a few hours of milking. We have fully dedicated Milk Chilling Centres (MCC) which cover a territory of 30 Kilometers around them. Once the milk arrives at the MCC, it is judged on the basis of several parameters. Once all the tests and checks are done in order to ensure superior quality, it is chilled and sent of for further processing.
