Gandhinagar District Cooperative Milk Union Ltd well known as Madhur Dairy is an ISO 9001-2015 and ISO 22000-2005 organization established on 6th February, 1971 under Gujarat Cooperative Society Act- 1962. This Union is small in size but credible and large in rewarding the highest milk price to farmers in Gujarat.
Looking to the milk procurement data, Madhur had progressed very fast from 3000 LPD in year 1962 to 2.64 Lakh LPD in year 2018. The Union has focused on awareness and education of primary milk producers which is resulted in increased milk procurement, cattle development services. Madhur dairy has total number of 204 Village Dairy Cooperative societies (VDCS) having total members of 47,021 registered as primary milk producers. It is our proud that out of total 166 VDSC, we have 38 cooperatives run by only women. This is a great milestone in development of Madhur Dairy.
Considering the financial growth of the Madhur, it is notable that the Union has reached to 500 crores of turnover in year 2016-17. Apartfrom the milk and milk products, Madhur Sweets has captured a best market in capital.
I am honoured to be a Chairman of a growing milk cooperative since last 17 years. Today Madhur Dairy has its own identity and brand in the market. Since 2016, Madhur has signed agreement to pack and distribute milk and buttermilk in name of ‘AMUL’ brand to be marketed under the large milk distribution channel of India i.e. Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF).
You will be delighted to know that MADHUR DAIRY celebrates its Golden Jubilee in year 2020. We have selected a theme of “Gunavattayukt Gandhinagar” means Qualitative Capital. Quality and service is two main pillars of Madhur. Quality at both ends, producers as well at consumers. Madhur dairy tries to make Capital as a PROSUMER SOCIETY -a happy and healthy society linking milk Producers and milk Consumers together.
