Supply Chain Management

Milk Procurement: – Mother Dairy sources its requirement of liquid milk from dairy co-operatives and producer institutions. Milk is received from farmer cooperatives through insulated road/rail tankers at very low temperatures in order to retain its freshness.

Milk distribution: -79 tankers in the morning and 75 tankers in the evening bring in milk from the regional collection centers. After collection the same tankers are utilized for the delivery of the processed milk to the vendors and outlets. Mother Dairy has over 820 Milk Distribution Outlets in the National Capital Region. Each of these outlets places their demand by raising an invoice one day in advance. The demand is also calculated using the ‘Calendar’ Scheme, in this depending on the pre-calculated seasonal demands the outlets place their orders accordingly. In order to satisfy immediate demand, 20 to 25 tankers are provided with a buffer stock of 500 liters each day so that they can be mobilized to cater to the demand in an area. To coordinate its operations all the tankers are equipped with HAM radios.


At the mother dairy, the processing of milk is done by process automation whereby state-of-the-art microprocessor technology is adopted to integrate and completely automate all functions of the milk processing areas to ensure high product quality/reliability and safety. There are four ways of milk processing – Firstly, Clarification, in which milk is spun at very high speed, removing all dust particles that are invisible to the naked eye.

Secondly, Standardisation helps milk maintain uniformity by raising or lowering its fat and SNF (solid not fat) percentage to the desired levels, so as to deliver milk to consumers as per prescribed PFA norms. Thirdly, it is Homogenization which improves the palatability of milk, and Finally, Pasteurization, which kills all pathogenic bacteria present in the milk thus making it safe for consumption.
