Following is an excerpt from a report in Economic Times.

Mumbai Angels, an angel investment network, will invest in Kolkata-based milk packaging and distributing company Milk Mantra . The company, which is the latest in the agri sector to catch attention of investors, has already received early stage funding from Avishkar and an angel investor based in the UK.

“The company is planning to introduce fresh milk in cartons for the first time in India. It is a huge opportunity for a market like India where fresh milk is available only in plastic covers, which are not always hygienic.

… “Our aim is to offer direct to home service of fresh milk packed in a more hygienic manner. We have tied up with about 50,000 farmers in Orissa to procure milk. We expect to start business this year and in the initial phase it will be available in Kolkata and Bhubaneswar,” he said.

Following are excerpts from a New Indian Express report on it.

… Omfed has started supplying grass seed, seedlings and mini cuts to over two lakh dairy farmers.

The farmers would be required to grow grass in their lands and thereby reduce expenses incurred on feeding to a large extent. With quality grass included in the diet, milk production would not only increase but also be of superior quality.

The seed, seedlings and mini cuts would be supplied through 3,000 milk societies in the State.

Pioneer reports on OMFED‘s milk collection and its future plans. Following are some excerpts.

The Orissa Milk Federation (OMFED) established an all-time record on Sunday by collecting 4, 11,237 liters of milk.

This became possible because of the dairy development programme spread over 30 districts of the State.

The district milk federation of Cuttack alone collected 2, 2,564 liters of milk, which is the highest among all the district milk federations in eastern India.

… OMFED plans to collect 10 lakh liters of milk per day by 2012. To build the infrastructure required to collect as much milk, OMFED has already started its work.

It has submitted a plan of Rs 15 crore to the Panchayati Raj department for enlarging the capacity of the existing dairies, building more bulk coolers in the rural areas, pressing into service more tankers for transportation of milk, establishment of new fodder plants and their capacity enhancement.

With the establishment of more fodder plants the producers will be supplied fodders at subsidised rates, which in turn will give a boost to milk production.
