NDDB flags off the Mobile Milk Collection & Cooling system in Gujarat

The Mobile Milk Collection & Cooling system is designed for trials and will initially be deployed by the Ladakh Milk Federation.

Dr Meenesh Shah, Chairman of the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and IDMC Ltd, along with Kenichiro Toyofuku, Director of Suzuki R&D Center India Pvt Ltd (SRDI), flagged off a Mobile Milk Collection & Cooling System at Anand in Gujarat.  A Mobile Milk Collection and Cooling system developed jointly by National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), Suzuki R&D Centre India Pvt Ltd (SRDI) and IDMC Ltd will be fist used for milk collection in remote parts of Ladakh.

The system with capacity of 300-litre is mounted on a Maruti Suzuki Super vehicle and is powered by the vehicle’s engine. Additionally, a Data Processor-based Milk Collection Unit (DPMCU) is installed on the vehicle, powered by a 100W solar panel.

Dr Shah mentioned that the system will provide automated testing convenience at the farmer’s doorstep, facilitate fair and transparent milk collection, preserve milk quality and ensure the shelf life of milk with immediate on-site cooling. This will also provide access to organised milk procurement systems for dairy farmers in remote or adverse locations and efficiently handle specialised milk types such as cow milk, camel milk, etc.

Dr Shah also informed that the system enhances access to organised milk procurement for dairy farmers in remote or challenging locations, efficiently handling specialized milk types like cow milk and camel milk. The prototype system is designed for trials and will initially be deployed by the Ladakh Milk Federation.

Dr Shah emphasised that the system provides automated milk testing at the farmer’s doorstep, ensuring fair and transparent milk collection, preserving milk quality, and extending the milk’s shelf life through immediate on-site cooling.

Toyofuku noted that this initiative not only provides convenience for mobile milk collection but also contributes to the improvement of milk quality.
