THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd (KCMMF), popularly known as Milma, will celebrate the ‘National Milk Day’ on November 26 with various programmes across its dairy farms in the state.

The ‘National Milk Day’ is observed across the country to commemorate the birth anniversary of Verghese Kurien known as the father of White Revolution in India.

Setting things in motion will be Chief Minister Oommen Chandy who will launch the ‘National Project for Dairy Development’ scheme for the state’s dairy farmers at the Co-Bank Towers here.

The Central Government-sponsored scheme is being implemented for the next three years to create and strengthen infrastructure for production of quality milk products among other things. Rural Development Minister K C Joseph is also likely to attend the function.

Milma will also organise the Verghese Kurien memorial lecture in the city by B M Vyas, National Dairy Development Board director and former managing director of Amul India, and V Mukunda Das, director of Chandragupta Institute of Management, Patna.

Vyas will speak on ‘Verghese Kurien - The Institution Builder’ while Das will speak  on ‘Professional Management - Learning from Verghese Kurien’s Life’.

‘’With the launch of this scheme, Milma plans to put in place a scientific approach that will help Kerala to contribute towards improving the breed of milk-producing animals,” said P K Pathak, Milma managing director.

OPEN TO PUBLIC

Milma will also celebrate the Milk Day in all its 14 dairies in the state.

All Milma dairies will be opened to general public on November 26 and 27 to witness the day-to-day operations there.
