About Punjab Milk Co Operatives

Dairy industry is one of the main sources of economic development in the state of Punjab. There are around 75% people in this Indian state whose main occupation is agriculture. In fact, provisions have been so made that small and landless rural families are able to supply their milk with convenience to the urban consumers with the help of Milkfed and Cooperative Unions.

Milkfed or the Punjab State Cooperative Milk Producers' Federation Limited is an important milk federation of the state that was formed in 1973. This milk association was started with two main objectives. These include:
  • To market the products of the milk producers and to offer value-addition to them
  • To help them with technical inputs for the improvement of milk production


Current Scenario of the Punjab Milk Co Operatives

Guided by laws and keeping basic objectives in mind, the Punjab State Cooperative Milk Producers' Federation Limited, which is a major player among the cooperatives, achieved impressive results posting massive gains since its inception. With the help of proficient administration, the federation offered dairy farmers cutting-edge services that enabled them to build a strong relationship with the consumers. As a result, the federation saw tremendous increase in its turnover. During 2007-08, the turnover was standing at ` 931 crores. But in 2008-09, it reached the ` 1150 crores level.

A transparent method of working in this sector has helped the milk cooperative societies in Punjab attract the attention of more farmers to dairy farming. As a result, considerable rise in the number of dairy farms in Punjab have also been noticed.
