The Kerala Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (Milma) is procuring one crore litres of milk beyond its routine requirement to meet the extra demand anticipated in the week-long Onam celebrations.
Highlighting their preparations
Milma Chairman K.S. Mani said the federation would source milk from dairy cooperatives of neighbouring States to meet the additional requirement during the festival season. Since this was the first Onam coming with zero fear of COVID after 2020, Milma expected an all-time record sale of its milk and allied products, he said.
Also, Milma has supplied 6.5 lakh units of ghee and payasam mix for the beneficiaries of the government’s free Onam kit for BPL-category people

“We are expecting a 12 per cent rise in milk and 16 per cent increase in curd sales during Onam days,” he noted. “We have ensured an abundant supply of milk, Curd, Ghee and other products during the festival.”
“Our festival spirit shall not be dampened due to the scarcity of milk, even if we are sourcing the same at a higher price. It is MILMA’s responsibility to ensure that good quality milk is available to the people of Kerala without interruption during the Onam season,” KCMMF Chairman added.
According to the KCMMF Chairman, as part of its Repositioning Milma initiative, Milma has made remarkable progress in ensuring uniformity in the quality, packing and distribution of milk and products.
