The performance of the Indian dairy sector has been quite impressive. Milk production in India has been increased from 17 mln.tones in 1950/51 to over 109 mln.tones by 2008/09. During the past one and half decades (1990-2006), milk production has grown at a rate of nearly 4% per year (for comparison the world growth rate for the same period is only 1.5%). The export of dairy products has been increased from 13.98 mln.Rs. in 1990/91 to 6766.82 mln.Rs. in 2005/06, while import has been increased from 40.52 mln.Rs. to 345.66 mln.Rs. during the same period of time. Even more obvious is that if the net trade balance of the dairy products has changed from negative to a positive the country became the world main exporter of dairy products.
As per the industry, the share of VADP in milk and milk derivatives’ segment is growing with approximately 25% every year and is expected to grow at the same rate until 2019/20.
The Indian dairy sector has to gear itself to meet the following challenges:
• Increase of the milk production at a rate even higher than the existing growth.
• Increase of the production value of sub dairy products.
• Provide a complete quality assurance.
