Before delving deep into the discussion about Nagaland Milk Co Operatives, it is better to first run a background check on the development of milk industry in Nagaland.

Dairy Industry in Nagaland

In Nagaland, people learnt about milk only after World War II, as they used to subsist on non-vegetarian foods only. In fact, during the time when Christian missionaries came to this state with cows, people did not consider dairy farming to be a good occupation choice. But with time flying by and the industry registering growth, all the apprehensions gradually faded into thin air.

The success story of the dairy industry in Nagaland became evident with Komul, one of the economic enterprises, managing to garner profits following the style of Amul, another milk industry giant. Komul runs 80 dairy cooperatives now with 3100 farmers employed in its various plants.

It is interesting to note that 22 plants of Komul are fully managed by women. The company supplies milk items to Dimapur Railway Station. In Upper Assam, it has set up a market. It has opened a milk parlor in Kohima and its supply goes to several military and para-military establishments in the region.

Women's Contribution in the Growth of Nagaland Dairy Industry

Naga women are playing key role in the growth of the dairy industry in Nagaland. Majority of the women are involved in raising cows in semi-urban and urban areas. According to statistics, in the month of December 2008, about 60% of milk that was provided to pasteurization plants at Dimapur and Kohima was produced by women.
