The Orissa State Cooperative Milk Producers’ Federation Limited (Omfed), the leader in milk and allied food products in Odisha, is all set to open Omfed parlour in 10 colleges in the capital city of Bhubaneswar soon.
According to sources, since the Government has set a target to procure more milk from farmers from February, it is pertinent to make alternative arrangement for their suitable sale.
Sources in the Department of Fisheries and Animal Resources Development said a budgetary allocation of Rs 3 crore has been made to for the purpose.
The parlours will be opened at BJB Autonomous College, Ramadevi Women’s University, Maharishi College, Rajdhani College and six other city-based colleges.
Letters were written to the concerned college and university authorities to provide land for the purpose to which they have responded positively, said sources in the Fisheries and Animal Resources Development.
Omfed with a singular focus on marketing of qualitative milk products has reached consumers in the State in a big way. Omfed is not only providing remunerative returns to the milk farmers but also serving the interest of the consumers by providing quality products.
