INDIA - Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) has sent a first container of milk to South Africa through Vanya Food Exports.
The first batch of container containing 16,800 liters was flagged off by state’s chief minister Siddaramaiah that was shipped to South Africa, reports Jagdish Kumar.
“We are getting many enquiries from African countries for Nandini milk from Indians living there,” A S Premanath, MD, KMF said.
The federation is trying to tap substantial export potential in 23 countries.
KMF is planning to ensure that its Nandini milk brand would be available in countries such as Senegal, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Congo, Algeria, Libya, South Sudan, Kenya and Angola.
On World Milk Day and Nandini Sweet Festival held earlier this month, KMF organised distribution of compensation cheques to milk producers who recently lost their cows because of Foot-and-mouth disease.
As part of its efforts to strengthen domestic market presence, KMF has opened new depots in New Delhi, Jammu & Kashmir, Assam (Guwahati), West Bengal, Tamil Nadu (Chennai and Tiruchi), Maharashtra (Nagpur) and Goa.
