Milk powder imports will harm farmers: Dairy industry

Milk powder imports will harm farmers: Dairy industry

New Delhi, June 29 (IANS) After the slump in demand for milk and milk products in the hotel, restaurant and cafe (HoReCa) segment amid the Covid-19 outbreak, the domestic dairy industry has started using surplus milk to prepare milk powder and butter.

However, the government has decided to import 10,000 tonnes of milk powder from abroad under the tariff rate quota.

 

The dairy industry has opposed the move, calling it untimely. Dairy traders say that import of milk powder will harm the farmers of the country.

Managing director of Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), R.S. Sodhi, said the decision to import milk powder on cheaper duty is an untimely decision.

“Due to reduced milk consumption, there is 15 per cent more supply of milk than consumption. Most of the milk is being used to make milk powder and butter for which the market is already sluggish. Despite this, the government has allowed import of milk powder at a cheaper duty,” he added.

Milk consumption has reduced due to loss of business of the confectionery, canteens, hotels and restaurants due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Radheshyam Dixit, Chairman of Ananda Dairy, said the demand for milk in the HoReCa segment is only 10.15 per cent as against its consumption which is around 25 per cent.

He said farmers were not getting adequate returns on the milk sold by them and the decision to import milk powder will be disastrous for them.

According to a June 23 notification by the Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs, import of 10,000 tonne of milk powder has been allowed under the tariff rate quota at 15 per cent import duty.

Hotels, restaurants, canteens were closed when the entire country was under shutdown from March 25 to curb the outbreak of Coronavirus. Though open now, people still fear going to hotels or restaurants.

With the closure of educational institutions, canteens are still closed which has further reduced the consumption of milk in the country as compared to its supply.

Inventory Management System Spurs Ananda Dairy’s Growth

From ancient times, milk and milk products have been an integral part of the Indian household. The mythological stories abound with children consuming milk, butter and other such stuff. Fittingly today, India is the largest producer of milk in the world accounting for nearly 20% of the world production.

This journey from a position of scarcity to the present abundance has been possible due to multiple players who have ensured the interests of farmers, retailers and consumers are always kept centre stage. Ananda Dairy, one of India’s top dairy producers has a pride of place in this list.

Starting with just one plant in 1989, Ananda, under founder Radhe Shyam Dixit now has 4 major plants and over 400 retail stores across India. Ananda’s vision is to grow at a minimum of 30% a year and open another 1000 retail stores across India by 2020. This breakneck speed of  growth is not possible without technology powering the entire system from procurement to billing. That’s where SAP came in.

“Nobody can grow without technology”, says founder Radhe Shyam Dixit and it is that belief which SAP nurtures by managing the entire end-to-end process, from the farmer level to inventory management to sales and distribution.

The process starts at the procurement level. Ananda gets milk from 5000 different sources, all of which must be tested to ensure quality and deliver a fair price to farmers. SAP S/4HANA collects data from all the milk collection centres and uses it to value products and ensure timely payments to farmers. With 75 products and over 400 SKUs, manually keeping track of inventory was a huge challenge. Ananda uses SAP technology to streamline this process which eases planning on a daily basis and lets management focus on business decisions. SAP even helps Ananda calculate daily demand from different retail outlets by consolidating demand in SAP S/4HANA and dispatching vehicles directly to the given shop.

“We have adopted SAP technology for the growth factor. Each and everything is connected to SAP”, these words by Mr Dixit embodies the Ananda story of ambition and growth. And SAP is proud to be part of this journey.
