VELLORE: Aavin’s Vellore-Tiruvannamalai district Milk Producers Cooperative Union (Aavin) has issued a proposal seeking  additional 10 acres of land to expand its diary unit at Vellore. Presently the premises covers an area of four acres in Sathuvachari.

Meanwhile, the Assembly Estimation Panel, led by A Appasundram, visited the Aavin’s chilling and dairy unit on Thursday. Speaking to Express, chairman of the Vellore-T Malai Districts Milk Producers Cooperative Union D Velazhagan said that the existing chilling plant was converted into a dairy unit without much planning. It is now proposed that the plant be shifted to a 10-acre premises, so that it increases the production and reduces the loss being incurred by the union.

Dr M Periyasamy, general manager of Vellore Aavin, said a short-term proposal of `7 Cr was also submitted to the State to modernise the existing dairy plant in Vellore, while improving the machines at a cost of `2 crore under the National Agriculture Development Project. The short-term plan would help increase  the sale of milk while the long-term plan of shifting the plant would improve performances.
