Mumbai, March 22, 2016:

Indian Merchants’ Chamber in alliance with The Free Press Journal has been organizing a series of panel discussions under FPJ-IMC Forum, to examine the key policies undertaken by the government. Under this forum, a panel discussion on “Indian Dairy Industry and its relevance to the Economy” will be organized on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. in IMe. Mr. T. Nanda Kumar, Chairman, National Dairy Development Board (NDDB); Mr. R. S. Sodhi, Managing Director, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. (Amul); Mr. Mahesh Pathak, Principal Secretary, Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development & Fisheries, Govt. of Maharashtra and Mr. Madan Sabnavis, Chief Economist, CARE will provide an insight into the competitive landscape of dairy sector.

The dairy industry offers the fastest way to uplift the incomes of the rural sector — something the current budget also articulates. Rural wealth could trigger a consumer boom, which could galvanise India’s GDP. It is also the most cost-effective way to bring nutrition to India’s teeming millions. Not surprisingly demand for dairy products has been growing. A well-developed dairy industry will enable millions of farmers to capitalize on emerging opportunities and make a significant impact on rural incomes.

The demand for dairy products in India is likely to grow in the coming years, driven by more consumers, higher incomes and greater interest in nutrition.

The primary objective of this event is to create value  for its consumers, initiate imperative development that contribute to growth of milk production, to determine the growth prospects of this sector and serve the communities in which it operates by contributing to their economic and social progress. About Indian Merchants’ Chamber Set up in 1907, Indian Merchants’ Chamber is an apex Chamber of trade, commerce & industry with headquarters in Mumbai.
