The PM has called upon the citizens to pay tribute to our brave martyrs by joining the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ program from August 13 to 15.
The Chief Minister has committed to hoisting tricolors on 1 crore houses across Gujarat. Gujarat has progressed leaps and bounds under Prime Minister’s guidance and vision.
Today, the state benefitted due to the ‘Double Engine’ government. Chief Minister also added that Gujarat is a leader in milk production.
In the last two decades, the number of milk producers in the state has increased from 21 lakh to 36 lakh. Sabar dairy was started by Bhura Patel, Gopal Patel, and Ambu Patel, the cooperative pioneers of this district, in 1964 with only 19 village milk societies and 5100 liters of milk collection.
Due to their vision and hard work, the dairy purchases 40 lakh liters of milk per day from 1800 milk societies and distributes 10 crores of rupees per day to the cattle breeders. The diary has a plant in Rohtak too.
To add, Sabar Dairy procures milk from cattle rearers of Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Punjab, Haryana, and Andhra Pradesh thereby enabling them a source of income.
The powder plant worth Rs. 305 crores, tetra pack plant worth Rs. 125 crores, and cheese plant worth Rs. 605 crores are important initiatives of Sabar dairy in the dairy industry.
This approach of producing essential products apart from milk, curd, or buttermilk is a welcome initiative as it shall play a pivotal role in increasing the income of both, the animal breeders and dairies.
