Mother Dairy, a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), has contributed in stabilising the dairy supply chain in Vidarbha and Marathwada region amid the nationwide lockdown to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, a statement issued by the Union Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying said on Tuesday.

Located in the Civil Lines area of Nagpur city, Mother Dairy is extending all possible support to the farmers and procuring an average milk volume of 2.55 lakh litres per day in Vidarbha and Marathwada region, said the statement.

Mother Dairy is committed to strengthen the connect between the farmers and consumers. Since the outbreak of Covid-19 in the region, Mother Dairy has not ceased its procurement operations for even a single day; instead it has increased its milk inflow by 16 per cent despite these testing times and lean season.

The total number of villages now covered under the milk procurement system stood at around 2,500 in the 10 districts of Vidarbha and Marathwada.

Mother Dairy has ensured that all associated farmers duly receive timely payments once in 10 days in their bank accounts for their produce with complete transparency in testing and weighing mechanism. In the last two months, benefits to the tune of around Rs 65 crore have been accrued and paid to the farmers. The dairy has also made requisite arrangements of balanced cattle feed and feed supplements to the milk producers of the region.

Mother Dairy, with its network of over 90 booths in Nagpur and nearby towns, has ensured consistent supplies to the consumers with following the requisite safety precautions.
